The aim of this paper was to determinate whether the intake of energy and nutrients was associated with all-cause mortality in the elderly men of the Warsaw region. Data on the intake of energy and nutrients were collected using a 3-day record method, in spring 1999. The mortality follow-up period lasted until December 31, 2003. During this period 43 men (29.5 % subjects) died. The all-cause mortality was higher among subgroup of elderly men with lower intake of carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin PP, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and among subgroup of men with lower intake of total fat, saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.
