Figure 3 Subgroup analysis of the association of γ-glutamyltransferase points and the total digestive cancer incidence. A: Smoking (no smoking vs ever smoking); B: Alcohol consumption; C: Obesity (body mass index ≥ 25); D: Chronic hepatitis or liver cirrhosis in men. GGT: Gamma-glutamyltransferase; HR: hazard ratio.
