Variables of maternal education level (p=0.042) and assessment of oneself health status (p=0.039) were effective factors in adoption of OPB, that way the chances of having a desirable level of adoption of OPB in students with mothers with university and diploma level were 2.20 and 1.50 times higher than those with mothers with sub-diploma, respectively. Also, the chances of having a desirable level of adoption of OPB in students with good, average and bad assessment of their health status were 0.67, 0.46 and, 0.33 times higher than students with very bad assessment of their health status, respectively.
