Broccoli and Tomato, A Good Combo

New research from the University of Illinois has found that, when eaten together, broccoli and tomato -- two vegetables known to help fight cancer -- are more effective against prostate cancer as part of a daily diet.

After 22 weeks, the researchers found that the combined tomato/broccoli diet was the most effective at prostate tumor reduction. Of the other treatments, castration was the only one that came close to being as effective.

To get the most out of these power foods, men should think about consuming 1.4 cups of raw broccoli and 2.5 cups of fresh tomato, or 1 cup of tomato sauce, or 1/2 cup of tomato paste (daily).

Fit's Tip: Looks like it is time to convince the man in your life to put a little broccoli on his (and most men's) staple food item of choice: Pizza.
