Hello,

Yes, tomatoes can cause thinning of blood.

Several chemicals including flavonoids have been identified in the yellow liquid surrounding the tomato seeds that have anti-clotting powers. A person will have to eat at least 6 average sized tomatoes to get enough of these chemicals to affect the blood.

I hope this helps.
