Red Grapefuit Lowers Bad Cholesterol Significantly

Eating grapefruit (especially the red variety) or drinking its juice daily can significantly minimize "bad cholesterol" (low-density lipoprotein or LDL) and triglycerides that are major factors in cardiovascular disease, according to a study published in an online edition of the American Chemical Society's Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
I just happen to like red grapefruit. It's nice to know it serves a useful function, too. Though, as news of "studies" goes, it isn't quite as exciting as discovering that coffee was really, really high in antioxidants!
