Tomato Juice

Tomato Juice can keep blood clots away. After drinking 250ml every day for 3 weeks, a group of people with diabetes experienced a much reduced level of blood clotting activity, University of Newcastle Nutrition and Dietetics PhD student Sherri Lazarus found. Platelet activity decreased following supplementation with the juice compared with a placebo group. Cooked or raw tomato produce could have the same effect.
