Researchers are saying that a tomato supplement pill may be able to ward off heart disease. Ateronon, the tomato pill, is said to block out 'bad cholesterol' LDL from the arteries - which is a key instigator of heart attacks and strokes. Researchers however warned patients at high risk of heart disease and those currently on medications for high cholesterol or blood pressure to continue as advised by their physicians because these findings are still at the early stages. The prelimary results have a promising prospect, however much more research and experimentation is required. BBC News reported on the pill saying, "Professor Anthony Leeds, trustee of the cholesterol charity Heart UK, said: "The new lycopene product Ateronon represents an entirely new approach to the treatment of high blood cholesterol and opens up the exciting possibility." He said the preliminary findings were "very promising". It is vital that high-risk patients maintain their regular regiment of eating healthy, excericse, taking their medications while also getting regular yearly heart scans to prevent from blocked arteries and heart attacks.
