Tomato-rich diet helps prevent prostate cancer

LONDON, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Men who eat over 10 portions a week of tomatoes have an 18 per cent lower risk of developing prostate cancer, a new research by British scientists suggests.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, and the rates are higher in developed countries, which some experts believe is linked to a Westernised diet and lifestyle.
