    I use an electric slow-cooker to prepare 36 tomatoes, cut in half, and sprinkled with ginger, turmeric and cayenne pepper, and cooked in a 3/4 inch of olive oil. So I get the lycopene and all the suspected anti-cancer spices in one go. Repeat every 10 days, storing in flat square pyrex dishes with sealed lids in the fridge, and eat at lunch and dinner, giving 60 helpings a month (Greek study showed half PC incidence with 30+ compared to 15-). Much better than backing spices hard on meat in the halogen oven, and <80C should maintain anti-oxidants. Interesting that cohort studies show the biggest tomato effect in Asians: they of course get the spices as well.
