Health tip: Eat tomatoes to beat wrinkles

Eating plenty of tomatoes could stave off wrinkles - and even skin cancer, say scientists.

The fruit is rich in an antioxidant called lycopene that helps shield the body from harmful UV radiation which offers an important line of defence.

Another pigment known as lutein achieved similar results.

Lutein is also called 'eye vitamin' as it prevents eye diseases including age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and retinitis pigmentosa.

Foods rich in lutein include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash. Lutein is absorbed best when it is taken with a high-fat meal like cod-liver oil or olive oil.
