Foods like tomato, grapes, and berries help to fight against cancer and reduce the risk of developing cancer. A recent study has found that tomato-rich diet helps to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer


Researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford University have found that men who consume tomato and its products have less chance of developing prostate cancer compare to men who consume less amount of tomato.
