Few centuries ago these tomatoes that we relish today were considered to be poisonous and acidic. What’s it like today? It is one of the essential fruit that is packed with several properties that are beneficial for our health. Tomatoes are also used in the diet for weight reduction as it has no fat content. This fruit has also a very powerful antioxidant called lycopene that reduces the risk of prostate cancer and very good for cardiovascular diseases.
