Tomatoes found to halt stomach cancer due to anti-cancer nutrients

A team of Italian and American researchers has recently discovered evidence that eating particular varieties of tomatoes (San Marzano and Corbarino) may reduce the growth, migration, and replication of stomach cancer cells. This effect is attributed not to a single compound found in tomatoes, as indicated by previous research, but to tomatoes as a whole food. The study in question was reported in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, and the researchers believe further study is called for.

Key Takeaways:

  • Tomatoes may stave off stomach cancer.
  • Extracts from both tomato cultivars halted the growth and cloning behavior of malignant cells.
  • The treatment with tomato extracts affected cancer cell ability to grow both in adherence and in semisolid medium, reducing also cell migration ability.
