Does Lycopene work against cancer?
Lycopene is a red carotenoid pigment present in tomatoes and many berries and fruits. Diets that contain fruits and vegetables rich in carotenoids like lycopene can help prevent some types of cancers. Laboratory experiments with lycopene confirm that it acts as an antioxidant and affects the way cancer cells grow, prevent DNA damage, and enhance enzymes that break down cancer-causing products, decreases the spread of localized prostate cancer, and enhances antitumor efficacy of docetaxel against prostate cancer. People found to have less cancer especially risk of lung, stomach, prostate prevention remain inconclusive.
