Regular high consumption of fruits and vegetables is recommended as part of a healthy eating. Studies have shown that a high intake of lycopene — containing vegetables is inversely associated with the incidence of certain types of cancer.
Lycopene is a proven antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which may damage the body’s cells. Lycopene levels in the blood may be associated with reduced incidence of prostate, digestive tract, breast, lung and cervical cancer as well as cardiovascular disease and age-related macular degeneration — the most common form of blindness for elderly people in the western world.
