red pepperBreakthrough?
A new ‘natural’ pill to stave off heart disease and stroke was announced today made of ‘lycopene’, a compound found in tomatoes and other kinds of food! Don’t see why people can’t just eat cooked tomatoes, carrots,red peppers and asparagus instead just like the Mediterraneans do as the pill is based on research of Mediterranean diet.
The BBC has the story on http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8076556.stm (a ‘breakthrough’ indeed!)
