Spaghetti Sauce Fights Cancer


Hmmm..a yummy way to help prevent cancer!

Studies are showing that you and your man's risk of developing certain cancers (like prostate, GI, skin, or breast cancer) decreases significantly when you eat 10 or more tablespoons of tomato sauce per week.

What is it about the sauce that is so good for you? Many scientists believe that the active ingredient responsible for the cancer protection is lycopene, a carotenoid known for its antioxidant properties. All tomato products contain lots of lycopene, but it's more available to your body when it's cooked.

And if you add some vegetables, like broccoli and cauliflower, to your sauce, you get double protection as they contain chemicals that prevent cancer a well.
