  1. Variation in food and nutrient intakes among older men : age, and other socio-demographic factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Year 2000 Nutrition Objectives for the U.S. population include increased intake of fruits and vegetables and calcium, and decreased intakes of fat, saturated fat and alcohol.

    This study describes variation in intake of fats, fruits and vegetables, antioxidant vitamins, complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, calcium and alcohol among 1161 male participants of the Normative Aging Study (NAS) in relation to age and socio-demographic factors.

    These subjects, aged 43-85 years in 1987-1992, are a subset of initially healthy men who enrolled in the NAS between 1961 and 1968.

    Dietary data were collected by food frequency questionnaire from 1987 through 1992.

    Intake measures were regressed on age, income, education, employment status, presence of a spouse in the home and self rated health status, and compared among sub-groups.

    Higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, and energy adjusted intakes of antioxidant vitamins and dietary fiber were generally associated with older age, higher education level and presence of a wife.

    Lower intakes of fat and cholesterol were seen among those with post-college level educations and among those not currently employed.

    These results suggest that messages and interventions aimed toward the Year 2000 nutrition objectives should be targeted particularly toward men in their 40s and 50s, to those without college education and to those living alone.
