The tomato slice in your sandwich could help prevent a heart attack, stroke, and even cancer. The yellow, jelly-like material surrounding the seeds helps make blood less “sticky,” inhibiting the formation of dangerous blood clots that trigger heart attacks and strokes.

Heart and stroke patients should benefit from eating two to four raw tomatoes a day, according to Asim Dutta-Roy, Ph.D., principal scientist at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland.
