Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene, which is an antioxidant that might reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, and macular degeneration. The cooking process brings out more of the lycopene in tomatoes. Tomatoes also contain other antioxidants, such as beta-carotene, that help fight cell damage that can cause cancer, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions.
Eat cooked tomatoes with a small amount of food that contains fat, such as olive oil or cheese that fat helps your body absorb the lycopene and antioxidants in cooked tomatoes.
