Friday Favorites: Lycopene Supplements and Tomato Sauce vs. Prostate Cancer

High doses of lycopene—the red pigment in tomatoes—were put to the test to see if it could prevent precancerous prostate lesions from turning into full-blown cancer. What happened when cancer patients were given three quarters of a cup of canned tomato sauce every day for three weeks?

  1. k w says:

    I’m confused. This dr says there are studies showing 500 Mg Lycopene shrinks the prostate .


  2. Rick Doran says:

    Lycopene supplements make me sick & dizzy

  3. Colin Deer says:

    Interesting and very helpful

  4. So maintaining a diet with a "natural" balance of natural substances (i.e., Not Manufactured and Concentrated into doses with abnormal companion ingredient traces such as solvents and precipitating agents) promotes wellness better than the ARTIFICIAL versions.

    What a Stinkin' Surprise!

  5. Gary65437 says:

    I wish the average can of tomato paste, sauce, or diced tomatoes didn't have so much sugar as 4 g is the lowest without buying super expensive organic non GMO stuff. My teeth pain tell me I'm eating too much sugar.

  6. Matt S says:

    Phenomenal content. Thank you.

  7. Onederer says:

    Just eat watermelon, the amount of watermelon you can eat a day can give you enormous amounts of Lycopene 🙂 and it is the most cleansing food you could possibly eat.

  8. what about healthy people? how does the supplement react ?

  9. What about Tomatoe Powder ? Does it have the same benefits ?

  10. Dan says:

    One of the quickest meals in the UK from shelf stable ingredients is putting all the following together in a pan and heating it:

    Tin of chopped Tomatoes
    Tin of baked beans
    3tbsp of pure peanut butter
    4 tbsp of dry basil (buy bulk and it works out as a cheap calcium source)
    Chili to taste
    Black pepper to taste
    1tsp of Marmite
    1tspbsoy sauce

    Serve with 2 slices of wholemeal bread.

    If shopping mostly in LIDL and get basil online that's a £1.20 meal for 2

  11. "Just as Mother nature intended"?? 🤔🤔

  12. Y D says:

    Gee, Indian cuisine routinely combines all the elements seen at 7:40 every day. Turmeric, lycopene, cruciferous vegetables, and more. How they figured all that out centuries ago is a mystery.

  13. Jack Schitt says:

    I saw this guy buying penis enlargement supplements and hair growth tonic recently at the store. He had a hat and glasses on but I knew it was him when I heard him speak.

  14. Stephss says:

    This would help with the Skene's glands also.

  15. Jen Wylie says:

    I was just watching a video on 60 minutes the other day. A scientist uses grape skin as the fountain of youth. He has turned the skin into pill form. They next showed him with a bbq full of meat and a big glass of wine. I wondered why they went to so much work to turn the grapes into pills rather than eat grapes every day, and if he was so concerned about living to be old, why was he filling his body with food that wasn't healthy as well.

  16. Tony Nesta says:

    Agreed. When I started taking green tea capsules, a very high amount or green tea extract, I started getting right sided chest pain, where the liver is. Then I read that someone actually had liver failure by taking green tea supplements. Now I just drink tea or green tea and of course, eat my tomatoes (due to my moderately high PSA). I feel fine. No more right sided chest pain. And I want to keep my prostate, thank you.

  17. y t says:

    cooking tomato paste, sauce, juice or whole tomatoes, will increase the the lycopene content. also, eating it with some oil, will increase it's bioavailability.

  18. Recovery says:

    1) Curcumin
    2) Tomato sauce for lycopene
    3) Vitamin E from nuts
    I would also add
    Black pepper for better curcumin absorption.

  19. The other day I was about to get some supplement. I don t remember why exactly but I had some "good" reason. Then I remembered all the lessons I learned on this tube and (the exorbitant price of the supplement helping) googled and bought the real food that had what I was after instead. Result: impeccable health so far since I went plant based.

  20. Mark says:

    Need to write a book
    killing cancer with food

  21. Gaston says:

    This is good to know.. I am a sucker for supplement marketing. Your videos remind me to stick with food.

  22. Baron Bar says:

    Yeah. Whole unprocessed organically grown foods do it again.

  23. My aunt was given a month to live after finding a cantaloupe size tumor in her abdomen during a minor surgery. They left the hole open and her caregivers had to pack it daily with iodide gauze so it could heal, or close from the bottom–up..
    During this time my aunt craved tomatoes in a huge way, my mom would buy her a bushel of tomatoes 🍅a week, my aunt was happy, ate them with everything! Or just ate tomatoes! She lived 2 years, a happy life..she craved tomatoes 🍅 and lived a happy content life, a very blessed special lady.❤️

  24. TheGeezer. says:

    This channel is a national treasure, and if I had the power, I'd mandate its viewing to every citizen.

  25. This was the video back in the fall of 2017 that encouraged my father to try a plant based diet. He had just recently learned that his prostate cancer had become stage 4 and no further treatment options were available to him. He had nothing to lose at that point. After a few months, he went back in for a scan and the cancer in his hip had gone away and his doctors were amazed. After a few years, he decided to try to stop eating plant based because he missed what he used to eat and the cancer took over again and he passed away. A similar thing happened to Dr. Anthony Sattilaro (Recalled by Life) back in the 1980s. I was able to personally thank Dr. Greger for this video at the Food As Medicine conference in the spring of 2019.

  26. Liya Khan says:

    Fascinating!!! Thank you so much for the work you do, you save lives of humans and animals ❤

  27. Battery9876 says:

    GTC 200mg 3 times a day seems to work for prostate cancer in this study:
    DOI: 10.1158/0008-5472.CAN-05-1145

  28. Who doesn't like tomatoes? Dr. Greger, have you ever had repetitive cases of acid reflux (GERD) after consuming something with tomato sauce? People with GERD issues try to be wary of too much tomatoes and tomato sauces in their diet. We might like tomatoes and tomato sauces, but they don't always like us. 🙂

  29. Spectral says:

    And I thought that tomatoes are 'nightshades' that are slowly killing you.

  30. M T says:

    Always fascinating 🙂

  31. Jana Lu says:

    Why does ketchup and canned tomatoes give reflux but fresh/homecooked tomatoes do not?

  32. Ed V says:

    Wow. Maybe someone should popularize a phrase like “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.” or something. May prove useful lol.

  33. Mark Rice says:

    😀 passing on too 1 in need 😃

  34. Tomatoes are also relatively easy to grow, even in containers. I’ve got my seedlings started. Ready for Spring!

  35. I love this channel!
