My cousin warned me against eating too much tomatoes. She said it is high in uric acid . And for us on the way to senior citizenship, we do not need uric acid. Well, all I know about tomatoes are their are rich in Vitamin C and lycopene (when heated). Lycopene's are anti oxidants. Did I get that right? Anyway, that was a long time gone and I haven't had the chance to verify this from nutrition sites. When I do I will surely check back to update this post. Cheers!
