Frequent consumption of foods loaded with lycopene, lutein, zeaxathin, beta-carotenoids, alpha-carotenoids, and beta-cryptoxanthin may help boost an individual's defenses against prostate cancer.
Consistent consumption of foods high in lycopene may help guard against the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke and coronary heart disease.
Breast cancer is less likely to occur in women with high serum concentrations of carotenoids, such as lutein, lycopene, and beta-carotene.
