Avoiding Genetically Modified Crops, Part IV
Turns out catsup has an important nutrient called lycopene, and is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants.
In some studies it’s been shown to prevent cardiovascular damage and cancer, and helps to prevent and heal damage in our cells. Tomatoes are one of the top 10 sources of lycopene in our diets; more than 80% of our lycopene comes from tomatoes. Researchers have recently discovered that on average organic catsup has 57% more lycopene than its counterparts, and double the total antioxidants – a big nutritional difference.
