  1. Means ± standard errors of each variable are shown. Age and habit of regular exercise were used as other explanatory variables in ANCOVA. WC, waist circumference; WHtR, ratio of waist circumference to height; TG. triglycerides; HDL-C, HDL cholesterol; LDL-C, LDL cholesterol; LDL-C/HDL-C, ratio of LDL cholesterol to HDL cholesterol; TG/HDL-C, ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol. Symbols denote significant differences from nondrinkers (**, p < 0.01) and occasional drinkers (†, p < 0.05; ††, p < 0.01)
