You Say Tomato. I Say Yuck.

A new study from Israeli scientists suggests a link between tomatoes and a reduced risk of colon cancer.  In the study, 56 colon cancer patients were given tomatoes, which contain the antioxidant lycopene, every day for ten days.

The upside: The patients’ levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF), a hormone linked to cancer growth, plummeted.

The downside: I hate tomatoes.

In related news, I turned 34 over the Christmas break but I’m actually 31.8, according to  RealAge suggested I do two things to be healthier: More cardio.  More tomatoes. Did I mention I hate tomatoes?

What’s your “real age?” How many of you made resolutions having to do with your health?  Are tomatoes involved?
