We could soon see tomatoes that are extra-good for our health.

Researchers with U.C.L.A. say they have genetically engineered tomatoes that re-create the actions of good cholesterol. They say their early study found that mice that ate those tomatoes had less inflammation and plaque build-up in their arteries.

The tomatoes have not been tested on humans yet. The creation was published in the April issue of the journal of lipid research.
