  1. Results are presented by odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) adjusted for age and gender (left column) and multivariate-adjusted OR (right column).
  2. 1 Adjusted for age, gender, work type, leisure time activities, 2 continuous variable, 3 We defined a BMI of 20–25 as the reference category since this represents a normal BMI.
  3. Due to missing data for 33 cases on BMI the total number in the present analyses is 1642.
