There are many foods that are especially good for men’s health such as: oysters, fatty fish, bananas, Brazil nuts, and whole grains. But, there is one cancer-fighting food that men should eat daily: tomatoes.
It is not surprising that tomatoes top the list of foods that men should eat daily. Why? Tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, a potent antioxidant and cancer-fighter. Research has shown a connection between a high consumption of lycopene-rich foods with lower risks of prostate cancer — the second leading cause of cancer death in men.
But, what if you don’t like tomatoes. Well, you can still get some of the protective benefits from tomato derivatives like tomato sauce, tomato juice, tomato paste, and marina sauce.
There are many varieties of tomatoes, from which to choose. Of course, the best selections are those that are grown locally. Here are a few choices:
- Better Boy
- Big Beef
- Big Boy
- Bush Goliath
- Cherry Roma
- Fried Green Tomato
- Fruity Cherry
- Heirloom Orange
- Napa Grape
With so many tomatoes to choose, you’ll never get bored eating them. Now, you can jazz up your salads and burgers, with your favorite tomatoes!
