Fresh tomatoes are abundant in local gardens, and Dr. Arpine Saribekyan (Family Medicine, Palliative Care), offers some benefits to this wonderful vegetable:
1) Healthy skin (Beta-carotene helps protect skin from sun damage);
2) Strong bones (thanks to vitamin K and calcium);
3) Good hair (the vitamin A helps make hair strong and shiny);
4) A filling food (tomatoes have a relatively high water content).
