Today, tomato is very popular vegetable, but only 200 of years ago, in the United States, it was believed that tomato is poisonous.
Tomatoes are a rich source of vitamins A and C and folic acid. This is low calorie food, since one medium tomato provides only about 22 calories. Tomatoes are excellent source of antioxidant lycopene, which is believed to lower the risk of heart disease and cancer. Eating foods that are mainly composed of water and high in fiber, like tomatoes are, can help your digestive system to run smoothly.
