The Red Bodyguard: The Amazing Health-promoting Properties of the Tomato (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


It is virtually impossible to open a newspaper or magazine without seeing yet another piece about the health merits, or otherwise, of a popular item of food. Claim and counterclaim can often leave the ordinary person very confused. We do, at least, know that we should eat five portions of fruit and veg every day. But are all these foods equal? One, in particular, has become the focus of extensive worldwide research. Furthermore, it's delicious, inexpensive and virtually free from any unwanted effects. It is, amazingly, the humble tomato. Ron Levin, a former research pharmacist, unwraps the evidence garnered by hundreds of scientists, working in over 22 countries since 1980, in a readily digestible form. A rare mixture of practical health advice and deftly written popular science, "The Red Bodyguard" reveals that cooked and processed tomatoes are the best form, and that coronary heart disease, prostate cancer and possibly much more should fear this incredible fruit.
