Results: The prevalence of colon polyps was 41.6%. The risk factors for colon polyps were significantly increased by the cases of subjects more than 50 years old (OR, 9.213; CI, 3.291-25.789), subjects who didn’t have any regular high-intensity exercise (OR, 4.762; CI, 1.387-16.351), subjects whose intake of fruits was less than once per a week (OR, 5.938; CI, 1.069-32.985) and subjects who showed irregular defecation (OR, 3.066; CI, 1.178-7.980).
