Consumption of Tomatoes And Tomato Products Offers Many Health Benefits

March 1, 2011: 09:23 AM EST
Various studies have demonstrated that the health benefits offered by consumption of tomatoes and tomato products include lower risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cognitive dysfunction, and UV light-induced skin damage. While initial studies focused on lycopene and antioxidant functions, more recent research works focused on health benefits offered by the whole tomato such as antithrombotic and anti-inflammatory effects. Promoting increased tomato consumption may help raise general vegetable intake and improve overall eating habits.
