ABSTRACT
In this work relations between food intake and all-cause mortality were analysed. Socio-demographic situation and lifestyle factors were also taken into account. The study included 653 people (306 men and 347 women) aged 75-80 years living in the Warsaw and Olsztyn regions. Lower all-cause mortality risk was associated with higher consumption of eggs, fruit and vegetables rich in β-carotene and fats such as olive, oils and margarines. Overweight as well as moderate and high physical activity decreased the risk of all-cause mortality by 39% and 47%, respectively. Age, being men, smoking and eating less than 3 meals per day increased the death risk by 12%, 36%, 99%, 42%, respectively.
