  1. Notes: Hamsters were fed high fat diet for 4 weeks, followed by high fat and BaP treatment for 0, 3, 7, 10, 14, and 21 days. Values are mean ± SE, N = 10 (T0) or N = 8 (T3, T7, T10, T14, and T21). * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001 when compared with T0 group. Statistical analysis ANOVA with Tukey’s procedure was used, SPSS software.
