      Combining key ingredients of vegetarian diet cuts cholesterol
      significantly, says study
      http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2002-12/uot-cki112702.php

      "A diet combining a handful of known cholesterol-lowering plant components
      cut bad cholesterol by close to 30 per cent in a study by researchers at U
      of T and St. Michael's Hospital. The reduction is similar to that achieved
      by some drug treatments for high cholesterol, suggesting a possible
      drug-free alternative for combating the condition.

      "The study, published in the December 2002 issue of Metabolism, is the
      first to examine the effects of these dietary components in combination.
      Scientists have known for many years that, individually, soy proteins,
      nuts, viscous fibres such as those found in oats and barley, and plant
      sterols (a substance found in vegetable oils and also in leafy green and
      non-starch vegetables) have the ability to reduce blood cholesterol
      levels by approximately four to seven per cent."
