A unique product is considered to be a tomato containing lycopene - a powerful natural antioxidant, which is unraveling in recent decades engaged leading research clinics of the world. Judging by the results of studies, lycopene claims to be one of the most effective advocates for cancer. It is proved that, as an antioxidant, lycopene is 3 times greater than, for example, contained in the carrot beta-carotene: lycopene neutralize 1 molecule to 13 molecules "instigators" cancer - free radicals.

The fact that lycopene is guarded by phagocytic cells - immune system cells that absorb foreign particles and harmful bacteria. At the same time, these nutrients are stepping reproduction lymphocytes responsible for the destruction of cancer cells. As a result, "tomato antioxidant" becomes effective in preventing ovarian cancer, lung, breast, and pancreas. No wonder that rich tomato Mediterranean cuisine called the "cancer diet."

It turns out that, periodically adding these foods to eat, the man protects himself from a terrible disease.
