Abstract

Understanding the effect of changes in physical activity on mortality riskmay help researchers clarify intervention strategies. This study investigated associations of physical activity at baseline and 5 years previously with all-cause mortality risk in a cohort of 472 elderly Dutch men. Relative risks were estimated for relations between mortality in 1990-1995 and physical activity levels in 1990 and 1985. Adjustments were made for baseline age, chronic diseases, functional: status, and lifestyle factors. In contrastto previous levels of physical activity (adjusted p-trend = 0.39), baseline total time spent in physical activity was inversely associated with mortality risk (p-trend = 0.004; for the most active tertile vs. the least active, relative risk = 0.44; 95% confidence interval: 0.25, 0.80). No consistent associations were observed after fractionating total physical activity into activities of differing intensity or into four different types of activity. Relative to maintaining a physically active lifestyle (i.e., walking orbicycling for 20 minutes at least three times per week) in both survey years, a gradient of increasing risk was observed from adopting an active lifestyle to becoming sedentary td remaining sedentary (p-trend = 0.004). Recent levels of physical activity were more important for mortality risk among elderly men than activity 5 years previously Becoming or remaining sedentary was significantly associated with increased mortality risk in comparison with remaining physically active.
