Box plot of serum total antioxidant status (a), LDL/VLDL-cholesterol levels (b), ox-LDL-cholesterol levels (c) and total cholesterol (d) in female apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed high-fat diets supplemented with different oils for 13 weeks. Data are presented with 95% confidence interval (CI), and a denotes significant different from mice fed CO (diet A) whereas b denotes significant difference from mice fed CLO (diet B) with p < 0.05. CO (n = 11), CLO (n = 9), RWO (n = 11), RWO-I (n = 11), RWO-II (n = 12), CWO (n = 10)
