Recent research from Illinois and Ohio Universities has found that combining tomato and broccoli in the daily diet is more effective in reducing prostate cancerous tumour growths than either tomato or broccoli eaten alone.

For even for those who don't have prostate cancer there is mounting evidence that combining tomato and broccoli in your daily diet could reduce the risk of contracting prostate and other cancers.

The researchers compared the single effect of tomato powder and the single effect of broccoli powders added to the diet of rats and compared this with a combination of 10% tomato and 10% broccoli powders. The discovered that the combined powders acted in a complementary fashion and decreased tumor weight by more than half. It is expected that these excellent results achieved with rats could be replicated in humans.

While the roles of fruit and vegetables has been intensively studied in the past, researchers have typically examined specific chemical components derived from fruits and vegetables to isolate the specific cancer fighting agents rather than the whole of fruit or vegetable approach.

Tomatoes contain tomato carotenoid, a known cancer fighter, but also thousands of different phytochemicals which stimulate anti-cancer activity in the body. Likewise broccoli, a member of the cruciferous vegetables, contains sulphur compounds that are known to be a mechanism that delays cancer growth. By combining these two known vegetables together they provide a powerful anti-cancer effect.

Cancer can develop when the body lacks critical substances. These substances can be found in different types of vegetables and fruits and are metabolically essential for the normal protection of the body.

Therefore it is essential to eat a diverse variety of fruits and vegetables as they contain the nutrients that work together in subtle synergy offering the best possible disease protective effect. Simply put, eating a variety of fruits and vegetables prepared in a variety of ways will give you the best chance of cancer survival, prevention and good health.
