  1. If you're a subscriber, you've probably seen my announcement about my new cookbook, available for preorder now. We just published a sneak peek of a recipe on NutritionFacts.org, so check the description for the link!

  2. Why on Earth would you use a processed tomato "sauce" instead of actual tomatoes? You identify the good thing and then decide to use a crappy, processed version instead of the real thing. I truly don't get it.

  3. Charles says:

    I eat tomato sauce every day . How much is too much.? I eat about 4 speghetti dippers of sauce

  4. Brett Hong says:

    I take broccoli, broccoli sprouts, garlic green tea, resvertrol and turmeric as a prevention

  5. Sunli Ganghi says:

    My name is Sunli gandhi, Dr. Harvey is the only herbal doctor who could ever get my HIV cured with his herbal products. I have tried almost everything but I couldn’t find any solution for the virus, despite all these happening to me, I always spend a lot of money to buy HIV drugs and other supplements to keep me healthy and taking several medications. Until one day I was just surfing through YouTube when I came across a great post from Anita, who said that she was diagnosed with HIV and was healed through the help of this great herbal supplements of Dr Harvey, Sometimes I really wonder why people call him the great Dr.Harvey, I never knew it was all because of the great and perfect work that he has been doing. So I quickly contacted him and told him everything happening to me, and he asked me a few questions and he said something I will never forget, that anyone who contacts him is always getting his/her cure within a few weeks after doing all he asks them to do. So I was amazed all the time I heard that from him, so I did everything he said only to see that at the very day which he said I will be cured and should go for a test to confirm my status, I went to hospital for the final test and the doctor after running the test said I'm HIV Negative wow. I'm very amazed and happy about this cure i have really gone through so much pain and tears for this Dr.Harvey cured me with the help of his natural herbs.If you have anybody going through this same Situation or any kind of cancers or Diseases at all contact Dr Harvey today he cures them all save a life today.You can contact Dr.Harvey EMAIl::[Drharveyphytotherapy@yahoo.com]

  6. Awesome, I needed an excuse to drink more Bloody Marys, thanks.

  7. nistel SE says:

    tomato juice works too? and, what about astaxanthin? soy/tofu/soy milk is proven to lower risks for prostate issues.

  8. Harry says:

    Tomato Paste and Cocoa powder are health foods!! Maybe Deli Mustard and other goodies are too!!

  9. Harry says:

    WOW, Mercola says Tomato Sauce from a Can Increases Prostate cancer because of BPA!! How wrong can he be!! Mercola does thought experiments rather than real research.

  10. Canned Tomato Sauce…I thought canned anything was absolutely bad for prostate cancer…what's the truth here

  11. KK says:

    Sadly the market is full of Hybrid tomatoes 🙁

  13. D Hairston says:

    Outstanding! Love tomatoes!

  14. MMM mm says:

    so how much salsa to get the 30mg of lycopene .. the patients got in their pasta dish?
    and at the end of the video.. should it be glutten free cheese less pizza?

  15. Ravi Kiran says:

    I saw another video on youtube by Dr. Gundry about lectin in Tomatoes. He suggests to avoid Tomatoes, especially men over 40+ years. I am curious what is your take about lectin in Tomatoes that may promote Prostate Cancer

  16. alex says:

    if only selling people tomatoes was more profitable than selling them pills

  17. Awesome Bird says:

    Thanks for this video, Can you please make a video on a popular anti oxidant "astaxanthin"?

  18. Wait a minute! You're supposed to EAT the tomato sauce??? But your prostate is at the other end! I thought . . . I mean . . . crap, I've been doing it wrong. DISREGARD THIS POST!!!

  19. So, basically, learn to make a good salad. Diced up cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions should do the trick.

  20. A A says:

    My father who had prostate cancer and a slipping memory doesn't have it anymore. He also goes to the gym everyday now also.
    This is what he eats now:

    Oatmeal ( with flax, chia, hemp seeds grounded with honey and blueberries/strawberries/ black cherries in morning with a side of white tea ( green tea he is out) and tap of coconut oil

    Lunch kale/red cabbage salad with the flax/hemp and chia with some apple cider vinegar and coconut oil with some olives and a cut tomato with some canned beans on top.

    Dinner: I forgot how he does dinner but i do know it involves steamed sweet potato. I'll try to remember to post back once I get the info.

    For what it is worth, I watched this video and since I love eating tomatoes, I decided that I should consume more of them, be they in juices, sauces, or whole form, but I mainly focussed on drinking a daily "Virgin" Mary. I enjoyed a daily drink of tomato juice and looked forward to the possibility of even the slightest hint of results described in this video. What I didn't know and should have known, is that tomatoes are quite high on the list of vegetables that can trigger Gout Attacks. After being Gout free and medicine free for many years, after two weeks of drinking tomato juices I had a minor gout-like attack on my left foot big toe joint. This was not nearly as intense an attack as I had experienced many years ago, but it was very uncomfortable and caused me to limp around cautiously for several days. The ONLY thing I had changed in my daily eating routine  (I am a dedicated WFPBnOil eater)  over the last few weekswas increasing the amount of tomatoes I was consuming, and since I hadn't had an attack of any intensity for a couple years, I think it fair to say the tomatoes were a contributing factor. I have sinc e stopped consuming tomatoes, and finally today the arthritic condition has eased almost completely. I realise that tomatoes are acidic in varying  degrees as determined by whether they are cooked and how they are processed, but no matter, I am very retiscent to start drinking tomato juice again. 
    I am disclosing this experience as a warning to anyone who has a history of gout attacks and I would be interested to hear about anyone else's experience.
