I hope you can't overdose on lycopene

tomatoIt's that time of year. Trish and Frankie go out to the garden every afternoon and bring back a bowl of "red gold". Tomatoes. The most perfect fruit in the world. Today Trish skinned a bunch for me to turn into pizza sauce.

Every night we have a bowl of coarsely chopped tomatoes dressed with a touch of oil and balsamic vinegar salt and pepper and sometimes we just slice and eat 'em with a spec of salt. It's a great time of year.

I think we'll be pressure-canning a bunch in the next couple weeks if the harvest continues and we become all tomatoed out.

Your internet line says LYCOPENE OVERDOSE.... You should rephrase it to Tomato Overdose.
I am trying to find out if there is such a thing as a Lycopene Overdose and what the symptoms would be.

I put lycopene overdose in the internet line because I wanted those words. It shouldn't read tomato overdose because I don't want it to read tomato overdose.

If you're genuinely concerned about anything to do with an overdose, you should look for help at an emergency room.
