´Tomato skin´ pill could cut
risk of strokes, heart
attacks and cancer

Telegraph [UK], by Nick Collins

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/7/2013 2:34:43 AM

A single pill containing a chemical found in tomato skin could cut the risk of stroke and heart attacks and slow the progression of cancer, scientists have claimed. The pill, called Ateronon, contains a chemical known as lycopene which had previously been shown to help unclog blocked arteries, and which is thought to be one of the main health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Now a further trial has shown the natural remedy also made patients’ blood vessels more efficient, boosted their blood flow and softened arteries which had hardened with age. Researchers believe the pill may be able

Comments:
Good to see more work on lycopene is being done.

Isn´t it cheaper just to eat more tomatoes?

Question is, how many tomatoes do you have to eat to get the benefit of lycopene? Much as I love fresh tomatoes (and I grow my own in pots every year), the acid gets to me after a while and I´m not keen on tomato sauces.

I read that cooking the tomato with its skin affords maximum lycopene benefit.

I remember when coral calcium and bluegreen algae were a big breakthrough.There was another supplement that was pushed by Oprah for a while that was supposed to be a big deal.Sea salt is supposed to be better than table salt. Does the body know about this?

I don´t know how you measure a supplement slowing things down.You´d have to have a parallel person not taking them for a comparison. Sometimes these studies conclusions are to extend research dollars.

"While this is an exciting news,more research needs to be done."

#2, here are some cooking tips to make tomato sauce less acidic:

1. Use canned Italiam plum tomatoes, whole (unless you can get some fresh at a farmer´s market). Don´t get the chopped tomatoes in a can -- those are the "leftovers" of packaging and have been sitting in the acidic juice of tomatoes for a long time.

2. Basic tomato sauce basis: puree the large can of tomatoes, one can of Italian tomato paste, and water (three canfuls of water measured in the tomato paste can) and in a separate pot, bring the pureed tomatoes, paste and water to a simmer. For each big can of tomatoes, add a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda is basic in chemical composition, and will neutralize the acidic properties of the tomatoes (base + acid = salt plus water). Stir and simmer (it will foam a bit until the reaction has completed) until the pureed tomatoes no longer foam.

3. For meatless sauce, sautee lots of onions slowly until they carmelize. Puree a couple of heaping sauce spoonfuls with a little water and add to the sauce with the oil you cooked the onions in; salt and pepper to taste; add a couple of glugs of olive oil to finish the sauce (don´t fry with olive oil -- it scorches quickly).

Hope this helps -- I am Italian-American and I would hurl myself off the nearest bridge if I couldn´t eat tomato sauce! LOL!

Should´ve posted the Mail piece on this subject. It says you have to eat 6lbs of tomatoes a day to get the benefit of the little pill with the concentrated lycopene.

Baking soda--it was a must when soaking and cooking dried "marrowfat" peas to make mushy peas--a choice accompaniment to fish and chips. (Think of it as the British version of refried beans.) Some years ago baking soda used in this manner got a bad reputation--it was said to destroy water-soluble vitamins, like B vitamins. I have no idea if that´s still the rule or not.

Very interesting. You could save the skins from tomatoes when canning them and dehydrate the skins, grind into a powder, then add the powder to any tomato based recipe you have. Or I guess put the tomato powder into empty gelatin capsules and take it that way.

Right about now I could sure use a fresh from the garden tomato. We are at least 5 months away from that tasty treat.

Seven million voters turned out across Afghanistan on Saturday to cast their ballots in the country´s historic presidential election. The Taliban had threatened to target voters and polling places, but there were few instances of violence. Instead, those wanting to cast ballots joined long lines and expressed pride for security forces guarding the election and a willingness to stand up for their country. Women also turned out in large numbers for the vote to replace President Hamid Karzai, who is barred constitutionally from seeking a third term. The election comes as foreign troops begin their withdrawal from the country after

Three million lower-income Americans have enrolled in the Medicaid program for the poor so far during the rollout of U.S. President Barack Obama´s healthcare reform law, the administration announced on Friday. [Snip] A percentage of those new enrollees includes prisoners in cash-strapped states that have decided to rely on Obamacare for their inmates’ health insurance needs. The prisoners are getting brought into the fold the same way that a number Medicaid enrolees are, as 26 states are in the process of trying to extend medical coverage to single and childless adults who fall into certain categories.

The vitamins you CAN mix with medication:

We are often warned that supplements can be dangerous when mixed with medication. But now research is starting to show that the right combinations can be helpful in fighting illness. Co-enzyme Q10, or CoQ10, for example, is now often recommended by doctors to patients on statins. [Snip] ‘I don’t suggest Q10 straight away, but if the patient is getting side effects I do suggest it before changing the statin,’ he says. DEPRESSION--The medication: Antidepressants, The supplement: B vitamins. Why: ‘I sometimes prescribe a Vitamin B compound with antidepressants as it can act as a pick-me-up,’ says Dr Mike Dixon.

Palestinian medical and security sources said five sites in northern and southern Gaza were hit, including training camps for the militant Islamic Jihad and Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas´s military wing. The Palestinians said there were no injuries in the attacks. The Israeli army said in a statement it "retaliated" to "ongoing rocket attacks from Gaza", targeting four "terror sites" in northern Gaza and a fifth in the south of the coastal territory. On

Earthquakes rattled residents in Oklahoma on Saturday, the latest in a series that have put the state on track for record quake activity this year, which some seismologists say may be tied to oil and gas exploration. One earthquake recorded at 3.8 magnitude by the U.S. Geological Survey rocked houses in several communities around central Oklahoma at 7:42 a.m. local time. Another about two hours earlier in the same part of the state, north of Oklahoma City, was recorded at 2.9 magnitude, USGS said.

For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years.

Unhealthy modern lifestyles aren’t the only cause of heart disease, say scientists, who have found clogged arteries in Egyptian mummies. [Snip] Earlier studies had revealed fatty arteries in a large number of Egyptian mummies but critics had dismissed the find as related to their luxurious, fatty diets. ‘Atherosclerosis is supposed to be a disease of modern civilisation,’ Dr Adel Allam, a nuclear cardiologist at Cairo’s Al Azhar University told Alan Mozes of Health Day. ‘It´s supposed to be explained by the fact that we´re eating all the wrong foods, not exercising enough, becoming obese and having diabetes.

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979. In a statement, the US company said the licence had been granted for the safety of flight. The step is being seen as part of a temporary agreement to ease sanctions on Tehran that US Secretary of State John Kerry reached with Iran last year. Under the deal brokered in November, Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for sanctions relief from nations including Britain, China and

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before.

He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
