Lycopene is an antioxidant

Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps to boast the immune system. This can be found in tomatoes.

It fights molecules called free radicals(main cause of many diseases) that can damage your cells and affect your immune system. Because of that, foods high in lycopene, like tomatoes, may make you less likely to have lung, stomach, or prostate cancer.

Some research shows they might help prevent the disease in the colon, throat, mouth, pancreas, breast, and cervix as well.
