If you are betting between a Gleason’s 8 prostate cancer and lycopene……bet on the Gleason’s 8.

A daily serving of tomatoes could protect against prostate cancer and slow the growth of a tumour in an existing sufferer, research suggests.
A study involving mice bred to be genetically susceptible to cancer showed those fed a daily diet rich in tomato extracts were less likely to fall ill – and survived longer if they did.
The findings, published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, is the latest in a long line of studies looking at whether tomatoes can combat a disease which kills 10,000 men every year in Britain.
There have been conflicting results with some suggesting benefits and some none at all.
In the latest, scientists at the University of Naples studied mice that had been bred to be at risk of prostate cancer.
They compared those fed a normal diet with mice given at least 10 per cent of their food in the form of a powder made from cherry tomatoes.
The tomato-fed mice had lower rates of cancer and survived longer than the others, they said.
But Cancer Research UK urged caution, saying there was ‘no clear evidence that eating any single food influences cancer risk’.

Humm, then there is no way I should have had prostate cancer because I have been a tomato addict my entire life. I have eaten at least one tomato a day, or the equivalent in tomato paste etc. I can’t resist anything that is made with tomatoes. Maybe it only protects mice.
Where do you live? I am from the South (My mother said Amierican by birth, Southern by the grace of God.) I have lived, loved, and breathed tomatoes all my life. Thanks for your comments. Ps…. I thought only Southerner’s adored tomatoes. Do you mean to tell me that other places love them too? Do you make tomatoe “samwitches with mayonaise” where you live? jm

Just like in golf “a hook won’t listen to damn thing you say” if your biopsy has elements of Gleason’s 8…you’d better sit up and listen.
