Lycopene in tomatoes

Page 1 of 2  
Interesting article on new cherry tomato raisin developed in Israel. (who knew there was such a thing?)

First 3 'graphs:
================ Eating your vegetables just got a whole lot healthier. An Israeli company has just created a new tasty tomato that is high in natural antioxidants that can help treat and prevent disease.
Naturally bred to include high amounts of the compound lycopene, previously available only as a dietary supplement, the Israeli-developed Lyc-O-Mato brand self-dried cherry tomato raisin will now be available as a food additive.
Lycopene is a nutrient and antioxidant that is naturally occurring in small quantities in vegetables such as tomatoes. It has been suggested that it can help treat cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and even male infertility. It is also useful in supporting skin health.

This idea is still born as far as I'm concerned until the Palestinians get their land back. I will buy nothing Israeli, although I know many good people live there. That should be enough to derail the group for awhile.
That said, we are talking about "the tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)". This new tomato allows you to get the same nutrition by eating fewer tomatoes? Why would you want to do that?
If they marketers found away to make cardboard taste like tomatoes, I would probably eat it. But no, they have come up with a way to make tomatoes taste like cardboard.
In the mean time, enjoy real, short shelf-life tomatoes, while they are in season.

Jews and Moslems lived together for fifteen hundred years. Then the UN said to the Palestinians, this land is no longer yours. How many of you would let foreigners chase you from your land? In the Nakba, in 1948, Palestinians fled for their lives. They are not allowed to return. Under international law, this is illegal. Israel is in defiance of at least 2 UN resolutions for Israeli withdrawal from land under Israeli "occupation". Resistance to Israeli occupation is termed terrorism. Israelis have F-16 jets and Abrams tanks. Palestinians have baskets with bombs in them. Peace groups in Israel have had hand grenades thrown at them. Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel, was assassinated because he proposed peace, not a just peace, but peace. Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist was run over by an armored Caterpillar tractor that was going to destroy a home with a family inside it. The documentary, "Death in Gaza" (HBO) describes James Miller and Saira Shah attempt to give a balance view of the conflict. Miller was killed by Israeli forces. Israel's offer of peace is what "white" South Africa offered black Africans, apartheid. It wasn't acceptable then. It's not acceptable now.
And, sadly, The Queen of the Underworld, Persephone has shown the same lack of flexibility as the state she promotes.

If only we (UN) in 1948 gave the estranged Jewish population some of Argentina all this would be mute. But the prefix holy means many must die. I always thought North Dakota would suffice and we would some how be vacationing there now and purchasing citrus.
If some one took my land I'd fight especially if the water was taken.
Hope Billy and Persephone work it out.
Meanwhile I've been invited to camp David to work this all out. Ya Right.

Ethnic cleansing aside, it's a shame that Persephone just presented us with advertising copy (see site above). It appears that Israeli advertising is just as misleading as American advertising. The phrase "can help treat and prevent disease" is just the kind of pharmacological representation that the FDA has been fighting with food supplements for years. It sounds good but means nothing and, no proof will be offered. Turns out lycopene is more available when the tomatoes are cooked into a sauce.

Oh, Charlie, if your there. I need to work on my green beans a little more. I usually screw things up the first couple of times and the green beans were no exception. I served them with Brazilian black beans and rice (see below), which uses oranges. I thought it would be nice to have orange and lemon flavors on the same plate. I guess I over "lemoned" the beans. The criticism I got was that the "Lovey-poo" couldn't taste the beans. Next time I'll try to mute the lemon by not using any of the zest. I'll get it right eventually.
I only used a couple of oranges for this recipe. It still came out pretty orangey:-) I did use some segments as garnish.
Brazilian-Style Black Beans and Rice
Serving Size : 8 Beans Citrus ham Oranges Raisin Rice
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------- 1 Lb Dried Black Beans -- soaked and drained 1 Ham Bone 2 Quarts Water 1 Tbsp Mustard Seed 1 Tbsp Dried Oregano 2 Clove Garlic -- lightly crushed 2 Bay Leaves 2 Tbsps Salt 1/4 cup Raisins 8 Oranges 2 cup Rice -- cooked
Combine the beans, bones, water, mustard seed, oregano, garlic, and oregano in a large pot. Cook uncovered over medium-low heat 3-4 hours or until the beans are soft, stirring occasionally.
Remove the bay leaves and the ham bone. Use a stick blender to puree some of the beans, leaving most of the beans whole.
Remove any meat from the ham bone and add it back to the beans.
Add the raisins.
Let cook again over low heat another 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes or so to prevent sticking.
Wash the oranges carefully and remove the zest in long thin strips. Then peel the oranges and remove the segments. Squeeze the juice from the segmented oranges over the segments. Immediately before serving, top the hot cooked rice with the beans. Sprinkle all the zest over the beans.

Here is a plan:
The United States should BUY from Mexico a strip of land along the Mexican / U.S. border about 10 miles wide. The U.S. could then tell Israel that this is their new "Promised Land". The Jews would leave the Middle East. The Jews would have a new group of people to exploit and they would serve as a buffer to help prevent the invasion of the United States by poor Mexicans. Those Jews know how to build fences and walls. The land is mostly hot and dry desert type climate which the Jews are used to. If the Jews insisted on fighting a war, they could go up to Utah and pick on the Mormans. Joe Lieberman could satisfy his political ambitions and run for President of the new "Promised Land". A lot of issues would be solved.

The "Promised Land" next to "Jesus Land"? Hmmm. I think the thing is this concept of an ethnically pure state. The idea was tried in the first half of the 20th century and got pretty nasty reviews. How about, "you can be in my dream, if I can be in yours". Of course this conflict is no more about religion than it was in Northern Ireland. It is plain ol' greed and desire. I say, go back to the way it was. One country, with life, liberty and, justice for all. But maybe that's just me.

Hey you Nazi putz. I suggest we give the Palestinians a nice homeland in Deutchland.
As far as exploiting the Mexicans, certain American conglomerates do a good job of that already. They don't need Israeli help.

What I initially said about the perfidious Israeli tomato was," This idea is still born as far as I'm concerned until the Palestinians get their land back. I will buy nothing Israeli, although I know many good people live there."
Your response was,"You are an idiot."
You have failed to substantiate you assertion through fact or logic, leaving me with the inescapable conclusion that you are a bigoted blowhard of the worst type.
By all means, let's return to gardening.

Hey sherwin,
Is this group open to anyone other than u$ians, in particular those of a progressive bent? Are Palestinian gardeners encouraged to participate? What about any other people of Arab heritage?
Lebanese? Are they encouraged to participate here? WIll you help them with their questions?
What about Iraqi farmers and gardeners who need help, those who have been forced to swallow the bitter pill of ADM/Monsanto crop methods?
You are an embarrassment to Americans. It's no wonder that the most of the world has lost respect to the U$.
You are wrong and pc by half, Billy. I won't type here what this youngster represents.

Why don't you volunteer to go to the Middle East and help these people, instead of spouting your propaganda bullshit on this gardening site. The only one who should be embarrased is you, who is annoying the rest of us with your tirade.

This quote has been running about in my mind the last few days, and I find it pertinent to our present conversations.
I find it gives me strength in many situations.
You are familiar with Nelson Mandela, and the human rights violations he, and countless others, suffered as a result of Apartheid?

Losing your dream is hard Charlie. Persephone is a good person but she is looking for Zero Mostel and finding Moshe Dayan, who would look more comfortable in a panzer tank.
The American government looked the other way when Saddam Hussein was gassing the Kurds. What do you think they would do for the "only democracy" in the middle east? Give them a couple of extra weeks to use cluster weapons, maybe?
Logic won't work with Persephone, she has an emotional connection that will be hard for her to break.
