Did you know that tomatoes are an excellent source of antioxidants? These antioxidants, coupled with the amount of vitamin C found in tomatoes, make the fruit a great part of a diet to combat the formation of the free radicals that can lead to cancer. In fact, tomatoes have a strong anti-cancer reputation.

The carotenoid lycopene in tomatoes is widely considered a must-have for preventing prostate cancer. Carotenoids and beat-carotene are, in general, widely linked with cancer-fighting properties. And tomatoes pack a ton of these substances into every bite!
