Orange Peels lowering Cholesterol?

Someone posted a link to and I looked up oranges this morning out of curiosity. They claim that there is research that shows Orange peels contain a compound that lowers cholesterol better than some drugs. Has anyone else heard this? How on earth would I eat an orange peel?

make marmalade or candied orange peel or use it in fruit cakes.
lots of gourmet recipes use orange zest, so provided that's the good part of the peel then that counts.

if you own a juicer (a tough one that can handle skins and rinds) you can juice the whole orange (cut into segments first). It will be more tart and (I think) a bit bitter... but it makes a pretty decent juice.
