OJ may increase good cholesterol.

Drinking orange juice, already thought to ward off heart disease, some cancers and birth defects, also may be a simple way to increase good cholesterol. A new study shows cholesterol benefits in participants who drank three glasses of not-from-concentrate orange juice daily. The study, commissioned by the top U.S. orange juice maker, PepsiCo's Tropicana Products, looked at 25 men and women with moderately high cholesterol levels. After drinking three glasses of Tropicana Pure Premium Original orange juice each day, high-density lipoprotein (or "good") cholesterol went up 21 percent, something usually difficult to achieve without drugs.
