Self-report of physical activity and patterns of mortality in seventh-day adventist men.
The Adventist Mortality Study provides 26-year follow-up through 1985 for 9484 males who completed a lifstyle questionnaire in 1960.
The relationship of self-reported physical activity and all cause and disease-specific mortality was examined by survival analysis and with the Cox proportional hazards model, controlling for demographic and lifestyle characteristics.
Moderate activity was associated with a protective effect on cardiovascular and all cause mortality in both analyses.
In the Cox model, age-specific estimates of relative risk (RR) were obtained for several endpoints due to a significant interaction between level of physical activity and attained age.
