Fig. 4

Adjusted OR for high triglycerides to quartiles of red meat intake by MC4R genotypes (P interaction = 0.05); Q1 < 8.02, Q2 = 8.02–13.99, Q3 = 13.99–27.81, Q4 > 27.81 gr. In A allele carriers, more consumption of red meat led to a higher risk of high TG (p trend = 0.005), but this effect was not observed for GG genotype carriers (p trend = 0.33)
