The tomato pill that could lengthen your life

Researchers from Cambridge University may have come up with a pill that could prevent strokes and heart attacks.

Each pill provides the equivalent of eating around 6 pounds of ripe tomatoes.

Trials found it boosted blood flow and improved the lining of vessels in patients with pre-existing heart conditions.

They also hope it could benefit those with arthritis, diabetes and even slow the progress of cancer.
