Fresh Tomatoes for Father’s Day
May 10, 2017
Looking for a good Father’s Day gift that puts Dad’s good health front and center? How about a box of ripe, fresh tomatoes? They contain lycopene, an antioxidant that could decrease his risk of stroke, according to one Finnish study. And plant-based diets that include foods rich in lycopene (tomato products, watermelon, pink grapefruit, guava and papaya) have been associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer—the most common cancer for men in the U.S. and the second-leading cause of cancer death in U.S. men.
