It is known that with the trimming down of total cholesterol by mere one percent, the risk attached with heart diseases reduces by some 2%. With tomatoes containing the antioxidant lycopene, it is believed to be a 'wonder-food' for the 40-plus. Apparently, 150ml of tomato juice after 20 minutes of exercise was found to avert risk attached with prostate, lung and stomach cancers and heart disease.

There is dire need for one and all to understand the ideal food for a healthy body before they succumb to avoidable diseases.
