The article cites a study about palm discoloration. It highlights the case of a 40-year-old woman whose palms became orange after eating tomatoes for about 5 times per week. In the conducted analysis, she was diagnosed as having lycopenemia, which is caused by lycopene disposition found primarily in tomatoes.
