Values are mean ± SE. High TV viewing: >3 hrs/day.

Model 1: Analysis of covariance adjusted by age, sex, sexual maturation and race. Model 2: Analysis of covariance adjusted by model 1 + weight status. § Values were natural log-transformed, but not transformed values are presented in the table. Analysis of variance in Model 1 and analysis of variance adjusted by weight status in Model 2.
