(Tobacco and alcohol physical activity during leisure time, the existence of arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia and overweight). Methods: From the 1991 Electoral Roll, we obtained a muestral population of 526 women. A detailed questionnaire and a physical examination, including weight and height with light clothes and measurement of blood pressure, was performed in every woman. Obesity was established according Quetelet index, defined as weight (in Kg) divided by height (in m) at square, arterial hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes mellitus were defined according previously accepted criteria. Results: There was an association between age and some life-styles and coronary risk factors. Younger women smoke and drink more coffee than older ones and also have less weight, while older ladies have a worse lipidic profile, have also more arterial hypertension and are more obesse. There are no differences between either their alcohol consumption or physical activity.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/74245||ISSN:||0212-9744||Source:||Geriatrika [ISSN 0212-9744], v. 15 (8), p. 13-20, (Diciembre 1999)|
