    Tomatoes and tomato juice are a rich source of natural plant compounds called lycopenes. This member of the carotenoid family of phytonutrients has already been recognized for its health benefits. Lycopenes in tomatoes may lower the risk of heart disease, and some studies show they prevent prostate cancer - although recent studies have called this into question. Nevertheless, lycopenes are a good source of cell-protective antioxidants

    I like tomatoe juice :D, but my mother hate it, I need to do that she drinks it, almost to have a profilactic treatment
    And reading more about lycopenes are useful as :

    # - A powerful antioxidant
    # - Regulator of cholesterol type
    # - Protection of the digestive system against the transformation of nitrites, nitrates and nitrosamines, responsible for cancer of the digestive tract.
    # - Protection of UV effects and pollution
    # - Stimulating the immune system
    # - Prevention of cancers of the prostate, lung, stomach, breast, uterus, and of all cardiovascular diseases..
