  2. AOR adjusted odds ratio
  3. aAge group, gender, marital status, ever schooled, vegetable intake, vigorous level of physical activity, moderate level of physical activity, and moderate fitness/leisure were screened out as the confounding variables
  4. bFruit intake, Age group, gender, ever schooled, vigorous level of physical activity, moderate level of physical activity, walk/bike activity, and moderate fitness/leisure were screened out as the confounding variables
