Tomatoes Reduce Heart Attacks

Researchers at Cambridge University have come up with a possible solution to cut heart attacks – Tomatoes.

Supplement Ateronon contains a chemical found in tomato skin, lycopene, which is known to break down fatty deposits in the arteries.  The study found the capsule, which is equivalent to 6lb of ripe tomatoes, boosted blood flow and improved the lining of vessels in patients with pre-existing heart conditions.

Further studies are planned but Ian Wilkinson, of Cambridge University’s clinical trials unit says: “These results are potentially very significant but we need more trials to see if they translate into fewer heart attacks and strokes”.
