Lycopene-rich tomatoes linked to lower stroke risk

Tomato ; free radical terminator

Eating tomatos  can help eliminate free radicals due to its  lycopene content.
Now, in a report just published in the journal Neurology, a team of Finnish researchers has linked higher lycopene levels in the blood to protection against stroke. The researchers suggested that lycopene, in addition to its ability to attack free radicals, may also reduce inflammation and cholesterol, improve immune function, and prevent blood from clotting.
