Want to protect yourself against skin cancer?

Want to protect yourself against skin cancer? In addition to putting on appropriate clothing and sun block whenever you go outside, eating tomatoes might help. US scientists have recently discovered that mice on a 35-week diet that included ten percent dehydrated tomato powder every day were 50 percent less likely to develop skin cancer when compared to others that didn’t eat tomatoes. The researchers believe that the carotenoid pigments which are responsible for the tomatoes’ colour might also protect skin against damage from the sun’s UV radiation.
