t’s a long-held notion that tomatoes are one of the healthiest food items that people can include in their diets. One of its major nutrients is lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that has been found to protect the body from infections and repair damaged parts of the body. Lycopene’s cardiovascular benefits and cancer-fighting properties are no secret, but a new study suggests that the fruit’s cancer-fighting properties aren’t limited to its lycopene component.

The study, which appeared in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, examined how whole tomato extracts from two varieties of tomatoes from Southern Italy affected cancer cells in the stomach. The researchers studied whole tomato extracts of the San Marzano and Corbarino tomatoes, finding that the extracts were able to put a stop to the growth of cancer cells, MedicalNewsToday.com reported. More than that, they discovered that the extracts were able to interfere with cancer cell migration from the primary tumor to surrounding parts. Even more astounding, the researchers found that the extracts led to the death of the cancer cells.
