Abstract Objective To investigate the association between cooking behaviour and long-term survival among elderly Taiwanese. Design Cohort study. The duration of follow-up was the interval between the date of interview and the date of death or 31 December 2008, when censored for survivors. Information used included demographics, socio-economic status, health behaviours, cooking frequencies, physical function, cognitive function, nutrition knowledge awareness, eating out habits and food and… Expand
What leads to healthy ageing and longevity?
TLDR
The authors found that cooking behaviour favourably predicted survivorship, possibly representing a surrogate for health status or socio-economic circumstance and which of them is more predictive of survival needs to be more clearly investigated in this population. Expand
Gender differences in longevity in free-living older adults who eat-with-others: a prospective study in Taiwan
TLDR
Both men and women who ate with others were more likely to have higher meat and vegetable intakes and greater dietary quality than those who ate alone, and pathway analysis shows this to be dependent on improved dietary quality by eating-with-others. Expand
A non-invasive modifiable Healthy Ageing Nutrition Index (HANI) predicts longevity in free-living older Taiwanese
TLDR
HANI is a simple, non-invasive, inexpensive, and potentially modifiable tool for nutrition monitoring and survival prediction for older adults, superior to its individual components. Expand
Diet quality in elderly Portuguese households
TLDR
Overall, diet quality was low and decreased over time but lonely elderly female and elderly couple households had higher values of HDIr, and adherence to a healthier diet was associated with lower educational level of the household head and location of the households in less urbanized areas. Expand
