The results showed that 18.88% found positive fecal occult blood and 0.02% of colorectal cancer. Factors predicted fecal occult blood were history of defecation abnormality (OR 9.02, 95% CI 5.72-14.21),  grilled food (OR 2.95, 95% CI 1.77-4.93), eating meat more than vegetable and fruit (OR 1.93, 95% CI 1.42-2.62), age (OR 1.03, 95% CI 1.01-1.04) and family history of cancer (OR 0.55, 95% CI 0.36-0.85). CRC was predicted by a model that included positive fecal occult blood (OR 16.39, 95% CI 5.34 – 50.29), eating meat more than vegetable and fruit (OR 6.06, 95% CI 1.74 – 21.17), history of defecation abnormality (OR 6.66, 95% CI 1.21 – 36.61), and history of alcohol consuption (OR 4.92, 95% CI 1.70 – 14.23).
