ABSTRACT Background and aims: Worldwide, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) remains as the main cause of mortality. Observational studies supports an association between intake of tomato products or lycopene with a reduced CVDs risk. Our aim was to undertake a systematic review and meta-analysis of the evidence on the topic. Methods: Medline, Web of Science, and Scopus were searched from inception until July 2017. We included longitudinal and cross-sectional studies reporting associations between… Expand
Tomato and lycopene and multiple health outcomes: Umbrella review.
TLDR
The intake of tomato or lycopene was generally safe and beneficial for multiple health outcomes in humans, but the quality of the evidence was not high. Expand
The effects of lycopene supplementation on serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels and cardiovascular disease: A dose-response meta-analysis of clinical trials.
TLDR
Overall, lycopene intake was not associated with reduced serum IGF-1 levels, however, association was significant when lycopenes was administrated at doses >15 mg/d, for < 12 weeks, as well as for healthy conditions and patients aged ≥60 years. Expand
Diet-Derived Circulating Antioxidants and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease: A Mendelian Randomization Study.
TLDR
Evidence from this study did not support a protective effect of genetic predisposition to high dietary-derived antioxidant levels on CHD risk, and it is unlikely that taking antioxidants to increase blood antioxidants levels will have a clinical benefit for the prevention of primary CHD. Expand
Lycopene and Vascular Health
TLDR
An up to date overview of mechanisms linking lycopene in the human diet and vascular changes is provided, considering epidemiological data, clinical studies, and experimental data, to suggestLycopene may improve vascular function and contributes to the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disorders. Expand
Relation of Fruits and Vegetables with Major Cardiometabolic Risk Factors, Markers of Oxidation, and Inflammation
TLDR
The main conclusion of this review is that well-designed, large-scale, long-term studies are needed to truly understand the role fruit and vegetable consumption or their bioactive compounds have in atherosclerosis. Expand
Functional Food and Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Treatment: A Review
TLDR
Clinical and epidemiological observations indicate that vegetable and fruit fiber, nuts and seeds, sea foods, coffee, tea, and dark chocolate have cardioprotective potential in humans, as well whole-grain products containing intact grain kernels rich in fiber and trace nutrients. Expand
The effect of consuming red and yellow cherry tomatoes on endothelial function in free-living normotensive males: a randomised cross-over trial
TLDR
In conclusion, consuming 300 g/day of red cherry tomatoes, but not yellow tomatoes, for 4 weeks significantly improved endothelial function as measured by FMD in healthy adults older than 30 years, and warrant further research on the mechanisms behind the health benefits of tomato consumption.

Lycopene: Implications for Human Health–A Review
  • L. M. Doyle
  • Medicine
  • Advances in Food Technology and Nutrition Sciences – Open Journal
  • 2020
TLDR
A large and growing body of scientific evidence supports the role of lycopene in multiple areas of health, including cancer, prostate, cardiometabolic, lung, skin, and liver health, and elucidates lycopenes’s mechanisms of action. Expand
The role of diet in chronic disease
TLDR
There is general consensus that diets high in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, omega-3 fatty acids, and low-fat dairy and low in refined grains, sugary foods and beverages, salty snacks, and processed meats are protective against these conditions. Expand
Screening of In Vitro Health Benefits of Tangerine Tomatoes
TLDR
Findings indicate that the tangerine varieties, Olga’s Round Golden Chicken Egg and Golden Green, possess greater potential to be used in conjunction with treatment and for the prevention of cancer and inflammatory-related diseases than the Alfred and Golden Eye varieties. Expand

Tomato and lycopene supplementation and cardiovascular risk factors: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The available evidence on the effects of tomato products and lycopene supplementation on CV risk factors supports the view that increasing the intake of these has positive effects on blood lipids, blood pressure and endothelial function. Expand
Lycopene and risk of cardiovascular diseases: A meta-analysis of observational studies.
TLDR
Higher lycopene exposure is inversely associated with a lower risk of CVD, and further well-designed randomized clinical trials are required to assess the role of lycopenes on CVD. Expand
Dietary and circulating lycopene and stroke risk: a meta-analysis of prospective studies
TLDR
A meta-analysis of seven prospective studies concluded that lycopene decreased stroke risk by 19.3% and could protect European, or males against stroke risk, and Lycopene is negatively associated with stroke risk. Expand

TLDR
The results show that tomato products may play a role in the prevention of prostate cancer, however, this effect is modest and restricted to high amounts of tomato intake. Expand
The role of tomato products and lycopene in the prevention of gastric cancer: a meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies.
TLDR
Consumption of large amounts of tomato products is associated with a reduced risk of gastric cancer, however, because of potential confounding factors and exposure misclassification, further studies are required to establish these findings. Expand
Lycopene/tomato consumption and the risk of prostate cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies.
TLDR
It's suggested that tomato may play a modest role in the prevention of prostate cancer and the type and quantity of tomato products regarding their potential in preventing prostate cancer. Expand

TLDR
There are a lot of investigations needed in the future to give reliable results to establish these CVD-preventive effects of lycopene, but there is still an encouraging situation, giving hints for antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory effects of Lycopene. Expand
Lycopene and Risk of Prostate Cancer
TLDR
It is demonstrated that higher lycopene consumption/circulating concentration is associated with a lower risk of PCa and if there are other factors in tomato products that might potentially decrease PCa risk and progression. Expand
Dietary lycopene, tomato-based food products and cardiovascular disease in women.
TLDR
The possible inverse associations noted for higher levels of tomato-based products, particularly tomato sauce and pizza, with CVD suggest that dietary lycopene or other phytochemicals consumed as oil-based tomato products confer cardiovascular benefits. Expand
Fruit and vegetables, and cardiovascular disease: a review.
TLDR
Although null findings may be underreported the results are consistent with a strong protective effect of fruit and vegetables for stroke and a weaker protective effect on coronary heart disease. Expand
