Cooked tomatoes are good for prostate health?
Tomatoes contain a substance called lycopene. Lycopene is a phytochemical that has shown promising results in reducing the risk of prostate cancer. Even men who already have prostate cancer may be able to slow its progress by consuming lycopene rich tomatoes. The key to getting the most from lycopene in tomatoes is to cook the tomatoes first or consume cooked tomato products like tomato sauce. Cooking brings out more lycopene from the product. When cooking tomatoes or making tomato sauce, add a little olive oil. Olive oil is a healthy fat that facilitates the absorption of lycopene.
