Diet rich in tomatoes cuts skin cancer in half in mice


Diet rich in tomatoes cuts skin cancer in half in mice
Jamaica Observer

DAILY tomato consumption appeared to cut the development of skin cancer tumours by half in a mouse study at The Ohio State University.The new study of how nutritional interventions can alter the risk for skin cancers appeared online in the journal Scientific Reports.It found that male mice fed a diet of 10 per cent tomato powder daily for 35 weeks, then exposed to ultraviolet light, experienced, on average, a 50 per cent decrease in skin cancer tumours compared to mice that ate no dehydrated tomato.The theory behind the relationship between tomatoes and cancer is that dietary carotenoids, the pigmenting compounds that give tomatoes their colour, may protect skin against UV light damage, said Jessica Cooperstone, co-author of the study and a research scientist in the Department of Food Science and Technology in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at Ohio State.
