Supplementary notes

The sampling of respondents was made online and not controlled scientifically. However, a logistic regression model based on age, gender, and the yearly population, was used to evaluate the consumption in the entire Belgian population. Furthermore, figures reflect the self-reported consumption of respondents, a margin of error is, therefore, to be considered. The source does not specify the number of respondents.
