    The tomatoes in this recipe are rich in a phytochemical called lycopene. Phytochemicals provide plants with natural protection against disease, sun damage, fungus, and bugs.

    Many of these naturally-occurring chemicals can also benefit humans by reducing disease risk and stimulating immunity. Phytochemicals have been associated with the prevention and/or treatment of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, abnormal bowel function, and arthritis.
