  1. Shown are odds ratios with their 95% confidence intervals in parentheses. Age and history of regular exercise were used as other explanatory variables. In addition, habit of alcohol drinking was also used as an explanatory variable in analysis of overall participants (non, occasional and regular drinkers) and drinking participants (occasional and regular drinkers). LDL-C/HDL-C, ratio of LDL cholesterol to HDL cholesterol; TG/HDL-C, ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol. Asterisks denote significant differences from the reference level of 1.00 (*, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01)
