Tomatoes may prevent vascular disease onset

Tomatoes may prevent the onset of vascular disease, according to a latest study out of Japan.

A team of researchers from Kyoto University told that a compound found in the world’s most widely-produced fruit may prevent a condition known as dyslipidemia, which is caused by an abnormal amount of cholesterol and fat in the blood stream.

The compound, 9-oxo-octadecadienoic acid, has anti-duslipidemia effects that the researchers said could help prevent the onset of vascular illness.
