Tesco the supermarket giant has claimed that they have produced a super tomato which has two times more lycopene as normal tomatoes. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant which can prevent cell damages and is touted as being able to reduce risks of prostate, colorectal and breast cancers. They called their super tomato "Healthy Living Tomato on the Vine".

In addition to fighting cancer, lycopene has also been found to reduce LDL (low density lipid) cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and thus fight heart diseases.
