The effect of physical fitness and physical activity on all-cause mortality and mortality due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer and other causes was examined using a population-based representative sample of the Canadian population.
A total of 691 deaths occurred among persons age 30-69 during the 7-year follow-up period.
Of these, 37, 33 and 30% died of CVD, cancer and other causes, respectively.
The effect of each risk factor on mortality was assessed using logistic regression analysis.
Adjustment was made for age, sex, smoking and body mass index in the case of mortality due to CVD, all causes and causes other than CVD and cancer.
