tomatoes and health

Again yahoo health has a great article on the beneficial effects of tomatoes as an aid in prevention of certain cancers and heart diseases (read cholesterol reducer). The presence of certain antioxidants in tomatoes is said to be crucial in prevention of these diseases.

Cumin seeds or jeera and cold

Thought this link I picked up on yahoo health will be useful to some readers:
Indian spices like jeera or black cumin have a tradition as one of the common home remedies for minor diseases and as a health food. Jeera is said to help in cure of common colds.
The age old Indian tradition of having boiled water with jeera (during meals) is now catching the attention of mainstream Western media.
