TOMATOES

ROME -- Tomatoes have long been hailed for their health-boosting properties but now it seems they may also help ward off the dreaded aging process. A group of Italian farmers have develop a "super tomato" they say is bursting with enough antioxidants to fight everything from aging to cardiovascular diseases. The secret lies in lycopene, scientists say, a life-giving red pigment that is found in abundance in the the new "Sun Black" tomatoes from the Rome-based Coldiretti farmers association.

The List of Six Factors Most Likely to Add Years to Our Lives, and Life to Our Years

What prompted Dr. Katz to focus on the 'Super 6' list is a patient he saw in clinic who had experienced a potentially life-threatening cancer a year or so ago, and is now living in the aftermath of a surgical "cure." The patient went to his clinic looking for ways to reduce the likelihood of that cancer ever recurring, or any other ever occurring in the first place.  Such collisions with our mortality tend to sharpen the focus of patient and clinician alike. Whereas any given patient might like to know how to promote their health, this patient approached the topic as a veritable quest. As you may expect, the discussion with this patient was far-ranging. He wanted to know about everything he could do to bend fate and probability in his favor.

They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus "Water Displacement #40." The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. The Convair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts. The workers were so pleased with the product, they began to use at home. The executives decided there might be a consumer market for it and put it in aerosol cans.
