GENE EDITED TOMATO BELIEVED TO FIGHT CANCER AND HEART DISEASE APPROVED BY USDA
Agri-Pulse reports:

In a potential new milestone in agricultural biotechnology, a gene-edited tomato that's high in antioxidants believed to fight cancer and heart disease, has cleared a key hurdle. USDA has formally decided that the tomato doesn't warrant regulation because it isn't a plant pest risk.

The tomato is the result of research at the John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory in England. The developers say the deep purple tomato contains high levels of anthocyanins, which are found in berries and other fruit.

A company that's a spinoff of the research has been working on breeding varieties suitable for production in the U.S.

Keep in mind: A report by Rabobank says products like this are why biotech fruits and vegetables are likely to take off in the market over the next several years.
