(Use during C. T.) Tomatoes' red hue comes from a phytonutrient called lycopene. Lycopene, acts as a powerful antioxidant, and has displayed anti-cancer potential in a variety of studies. In the lab, tomato components have stopped the proliferation or growth of several cancer cell types including prostate, breast, lung, and endometrial. Epidemiological studies have shown that men who eat more lycopene-rich foods have a lower risk of developing prostate cancer. Combining lycopene-rich vegetables and fruits, like tomatoes, with a small amount of healthy fat, like olive oil, increases the amount of this fat-soluble antioxidant phytonutrient that your body can absorb. The absorptive effect is even greater when tomatoes are cooked. Jordan Cunha is a nutrition volunteer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
