Hello Cristine,tomatoes are one of our best sources of vitamin c.This anti oxidant plays a key role in maintaining a healthy immune system.They also contain beta carotene that work against heart disease and cancer.But,high doses of vitamin c (more than 500mg per day)is not good for your kidney.cheers..

Tomatoes like people have said is a herb on its own. others have said much about it and they failed to mention this very important work of tomatoes. It is used to boost our fertility. If a man that has low sperm count takes it, automatically the sperm of such man becomes motile and can easily pregnant a woman. so it is medicinal. we do eat rice, yam and cassava with it. i love it. you can suggest it for a man or woman with infertility problem. good luck.

Dear friend, Tomatoes has both sides good and bad it is good for skin, prevents cancer, so on and too much of tomatoes are not good for kidney as the skin of tomatoes is not digested easily and the purification part is done by kidney. Hence beware for those who have kidney troubles not to eat tomatoes. Tomatoes juices are good for blood and it might be better if an expert diet consult could give more information on this.
