  1. High in vitamins A and C, high fiber, fat free, low sugar, and they have lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant and good for joint health.

  2. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and contain appreciable amounts of vitamins A and B, potassium, iron and phosphorus. A medium tomato has about as much fiber as a slice of whole-wheat bread and only about 35 calories

  3. ===
    Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits & vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons and papayas (but not strawberries or cherries).

    In plants, algae, and other photosynthetic organisms, lycopene is an important intermediate in the biosynthesis of many carotenoids, including beta carotene, responsible for yellow, orange or red pigmentation, photosynthesis, and photo-protection. Structurally, it is a tetraterpene assembled from eight isoprene units, composed entirely of carbon and hydrogen, and is insoluble in water. Lycopene’s eleven conjugated double bonds give it its deep red color and are responsible for its antioxidant activity. Due to its strong color and non-toxicity, lycopene is a useful food coloring.

    Lycopene is not an essential nutrient for humans, but is commonly found in the diet, mainly from dishes prepared with tomato sauce. When absorbed from the stomach, lycopene is transported in the blood by various lipoproteins and accumulates in the liver, adrenal glands, and testes.

    Because preliminary research has shown an inverse correlation between consumption of tomatoes and cancer risk, lycopene has been considered a potential agent for prevention of some types of cancers, particularly prostate cancer. However, this area of research and the relationship with prostate cancer have been deemed insufficient of evidence for health claim approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (see below under Antioxidant properties and potential health benefits).



    And plus, i don’t know about you, but i personally find them to be very tasty!!

  5. In addition to what has already been stated, tomatoes contain lycopene.

  6. calling them good means you are putting them on a spectrum where on one side u have food that does harm and on the other hand food that has health benefits. tomatoes have lots of vitamins particularly C, also has beta carotene and other compounds said to be beneficial to your health. so the point being made is that tomatoes are not a superfood that if eaten will change ur health for the better, but when compared to other foods, a tomato is definitely a good addition to a healthy diet.


    The healthy good looks of a fresh, red ripe tomato are not just skin deep. Tomatoes are packed with health-promoting vitamins and disease-fighting phytochemicals: in particular, the antioxidant lycopene, that prevents disease… And antioxidants, beta-carotene, carotenoids, free radicals, vitamin C.
