Cancer Kills Mercilessly, Eat These Fruits To Lower Your Risk Of Developing Various Types Of Cancers

With increasing exposure to radiations, harmful UV rays, polluted environment, pesticides, hazardous chemicals and herbicides, humans risks of developing cancer disease has increased.

Although governments have put in place mechanisms to prevent and treat this life-threatening disease, it remains to be the second leading cause of deaths in the world.

Cancer is characterized by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably and destroy normal body tissue.

In this article, I'm going to share with you how you can lower your risk of developing certain types of cancer by adding tomatoes in your diet.

Tomato is not only virtuous in treating eye, heart, brain, bone and skin disease, but also has healing power on various types of cancers. It contains lycopene, an antioxidant that capable of relieving your body from oxidative stress. This powerful antioxidant slows down the growth of some types of cancer cells like breast, prostate, kidney, colorectal, stomach and lung.

It is advisable that tomatoes should be cooked to ensure more lycopene is produced.
