The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has finally licensed a nutritionally enriched purple tomato after more than ten years of study and development

When compared to other types, gene-edited tomatoes can produce up to 10 times as much anthocyanin called an antioxidant

Red cabbage and blueberries have a purple pigment in them due to anthocyanins reason which is useful for a healthy body

Similar to blueberries do it, modified purple tomatoes will help lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease

They changed tomato genes with high levels of anthocyanin using those from the snapdragon plant. It will increase life expectancy

According to the study, mice who suffered from cancer were fed the anthocyanin-enriched tomato and lived 30% longer than the other mice

After receiving USDA approval, the tomato will soon be available on the market and may be produced wherever in the country crops are allowed

The USA is the first nation on earth to permit the production of genetically engineered goods. The next country to do so will be the United Kingdom
