August tomatoes--does putting them in the fridge ruin them?

Common wisdom is don't put fresh tomatoes in the fridge. Why? Does it chemically change them? Give me a scientific cite.

Or, can you put a fresh tomato in the fridge, and take it out an hour before you slice it and it warms up to room temperature and tastes just like it came from your garden?

Most interested in answers backed with some science.
