Sommaire de l'article

To investigate the associations between fruit and vegetable consumption and risk of asthenopia among Chinese college students.

A total of 1022 students were selected from five universities by a multi-stage stratified cluster sampling method. They were surveyed

There were no significant associations between total fruit and vegetable, total vegetable, or fruit and the risk of asthenopia. Higher intake of dark-green leafy vegetable was likely to be inversely associated with asthenopia risk [odd ratio (OR): 0.60; 95%CI: 0.37-0.97;

A higher consumption of dark-green leafy vegetable is associated with a lower asthenopia risk among college students with suboptimal eyesight and poor eye care habits.
