Box plot of atherosclerotic plaque burden expressed as aortic area percentage covered by lipid Oil Red O staining in female apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed high-fat diets supplemented with different oils for 13 weeks (a-d). Data are presented as a 95% confidence interval (CI) for the median, and a denotes significant difference from mice fed CO (diet A) with p < 0.05. CO (n = 11), CLO (n = 9), RWO (n = 11), RWO-I (n = 11), RWO-II (n = 12), CWO (n = 10). (e) shows a representative aorta from each group stained with Oil Red O Staining
