Benefits of Cherry tomatoes 

Cherry tomatoes are miniature versions of traditional beefsteak tomatoes, but they are equally as nutritious. In addition to the 1.3 grams of protein, 1.8 grams of fiber and 20 milligrams of vitamin C in 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, you also get a healthy dose of other vitamins and minerals essential for good health.

Cherry tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that lowers your risk of certain diseases caused by cellular damage. A 2000 article published in the “Canadian Medical Association Journal” notes that lycopene can decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Cherry tomatoes can have more far-reaching health benefits as well. The compounds in cherry tomatoes might offer protection against osteoporosis, skin damage caused by ultraviolet light and brain disorders, according to a 2010 article published in the “American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine.” Read More @ SFGATE
