Adjusted OR for low high density lipoprotein cholesterol to quartiles of green vegetable intakes by MC4R genotypes, (p interaction = 0.04). Q1 < 28.43, Q2 = 28.43–45.06, Q3 = 45.06–74.08, Q4 > 74.08 gr. The odds ratio for low HDL decreased significantly with increased consumption of green vegetables by the risk genotype carriers (p trend = 0.009), but consumption of this food group had no significant effect on the odds ratio for low HDL in GG genotype carriers (p trend = 0.32)
