Skip the red sauce and go for the green! The discovery of tomatillos fighting cancer has fit foodies reaching for the green sauce. A scientist by the name of Barbara Timmerman at the University of Kansas, recently discovered a set of naturally occurring phytochemical compounds called withanolides in tomatillos. The withanolides are not only antibacterial, but also a natural cancer fighter. They have halted and even dissolved aggressive cancer tumors in animal studies.
Tomatillos are also great sources of fiber, potassium, vitamin C and iron which combat fatigue and constipation.
