ISLAMABAD- Recent review has revealed that ingesting more tomatoes and tomato products could make people healthier and reduce their risk of developing killer diseases like cancer, osteoporosis and cognitive dysfunction.

Researchers discovered the role tomato products play in health and disease risk reduction. Tomatoes are the biggest source of the powerful antioxidant lycopene, they said.

Unlike nutrients in most fresh fruits and vegetables, lycopene has even greater potency after cooking and processing. Tomatoes also contain other protective mechanisms, such as antithrombotic and anti-inflammatory functions.
