Another essential fruit (yes, tomatoes are fruits) seniors should be eating more of is the humble tomato. Because they are excellent sources of lycopene, tomatoes have the unique ability to protect against several types of cancers, including prostate cancer. Studies show that they may even guard against lung cancer.
And that’s not all… Tomatoes are also good sources of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, magnesium, and potassium, all of which are essential when we get older. Plus, they can protect your vision, too, due to their lutein and zeaxanthin content. No matter how you choose to consume them, make room for them in your diet; you won’t regret it.
