Tomatoes save the day!

I love me some tomatoes! I especially love the heirloom tomatoes with their strange shapes and variety of colors. Did you know there are like 7500 varieties of tomatoes? They contain lycopene which is a very potent natural antioxidant. Consumption of tomatoes has been linked to lower risks of breast, head, and neck cancers as well. They may even provide protection against certain neurodegenerative diseases. Oh, and they taste good too!! If you're interested, check out lots more about tomatoes here. And if you can, have a tomato day today! K? Yay!
