Good morning everyone! i asked to be fed with raw tomatoes...it has many awesome benefits for our health. you guys should eat more too. here are the amazing health benefits of tomatoes...🐷💕🐽🍅😇 1) cancer - tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin c and other antioxidants. with these components, tomatoes can help combat the formation of free radicals. free radicals are known to cause cancer. a recent study in the journal molecular cancer research linked the intake of high levels of beta-carotene to the prevention of tumor development in prostate cancer. tomatoes also contain lycopene. lycopene is a polyphenol, or plant compound, that has been linked with one type of prostate cancer prevention. it also gives tomatoes their characteristic red color. tomato products provide 80 percent of dietary lycopene consumed in the u.s. a study of the japanese population demonstrates that beta-carotene consumption may reduce the risk of colon cancer. fiber intake from fruits and vegetables is associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer. diets rich in beta-carotene may play a protective role against prostate cancer. further human-based research is needed to explore the possible roles of lycopene and beta-carotene in preventing or treating cancer. 🐷💕🐽🍅😇 2) blood pressure - maintaining a low sodium intake helps to maintain healthful blood pressure. however, increasing potassium intake may be just as important due to its widening effects on the arteries. according to the national health and nutrition examination survey (nhanes), fewer than 2 percent of u.s. adults meet the recommended daily potassium intake of 4,700 milligrams (mg). high potassium and low sodium intake are also associated with a 20 percent reduced risk of dying from all causes.
