ABSTRACT
The aim of the work was to analyse differentiation of calcium and dairy products intake by older women in a retrospective analysis, taking into consideration place of residence. The study was carried out in two stages in years 1999 and 2004 among 192 women aged 75-80 living in the city, town and country. In the first stage, nutrition manner was evaluated, using the 24-h recall method. After 5 years data of the analysed women mortality was gathered. Differences in nutrients and dairy products intake were analysed between two groups: alive and dead women, taking into consideration place of residence. Our results give sufficient grounds for regarding older women living in towns of Olsztyn region as a group with an elevated risk of all-cause mortality. The analysis carried out separately for each place of living (city – town – country) showed no correlation between all-cause mortality and the intake of calcium and dairy products in the 5-year retrospective study. The revealed tendencies indicate the need of continuing studies with longer exposition to nutrition factors.
