I love tomatoes. They go well with so many dishes and can be enjoyed at any point of the day. It's not too heavy on the body also, so I get to enjoy them in peace!
Most people dislike tomatoes though. I know plenty of people who avoid them as much as possible. As a result, tomatoes often get a bad rep as a item of choice when making a meal.
Thankfully, some people are speaking up in regards to the value of the tasty treat!
New research suggests that wasted tomatoes (those that have just been discarded instead of consumed or used to throw at others) could actually provide enough energy to power Disney World. In fact, Florida’s wasted tomatoes alone could power the park for at least 90 days
A team of scientists, who have developed a “microbial electrochemical cell,” with tomato power in mind have discovered a way in which to turn all those unloved tomatoes into an electric current.
If research keeps pushing forward, Tomatoes could become a powerful and clean source of energy from people across the globe.
So think twice about passing by tomatoes in the aisle, they could become a rare delicacy in the near future. Enjoy them while you can!
@danidee do you dislike tomatoes? I like them cooked But my dad will just eat them like an apple. Blehh!
This story reminds me of @nicolejb. We're both on polar ends when it comes to how we feel about tomatoes lol.
@ButterflyBlu I am slowly, slowly trying to get better at eating them. @nicolejb has had me reconsider my tomato-hating ways. (And it used to just be cherry tomatoes. They're like mini seed bombs. Blegh.)
@danidee tomatoes are the best and so is Disney. They would make a great match :)
@ButterflyBlu i think because then they're all chopped up. It's the gooey seed part that grosses me out.
