Tomatoes get their red/orange color from the potent cancer fighting phytochemical, Lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful cell protective antioxidant. It belongs to a large family of potent antioxidants found in foods and healing plants called carotenoids. Lycopene is also found in other red and pink foods such as watermelons, red papayas, pink grapefruit, pink guavas, red carrots, red bell peppers, cayenne pepper, and rose hips.
Red grapes, strawberries, soybeans, dark chocolate, oranges, and green tea are among the foods with the ability to prevent blood vessel growth and thus slow the spread of cancer. ‘What we eat is really our chemotherapy three times a day’
