Associations of specific types of sports and exercise with all-cause and cardiovascular-disease mortality: a cohort study of 80 306 British adults

“Results Significant reductions in all-cause mortality were observed for participation in

cycling (HR=0.85, 95% CI 0.76 to 0.95),

swimming (HR=0.72, 95% CI 0.65 to 0.80),

racquet sports (HR=0.53, 95% CI 0.40 to 0.69) and

aerobics (HR=0.73, 95% CI 0.63 to 0.85).

No significant associations were found for participation in football and running.

A significant reduction in CVD mortality was observed for participation in

swimming (HR=0.59, 95% CI 0.46 to 0.75),

racquet sports (HR=0.44, 95% CI 0.24 to 0.83) and

aerobics (HR=0.64, 95% CI 0.45 to 0.92), but there were

no significant associations for cycling, running and football.

Variable dose–response patterns between the exposure and the outcomes were found across the sport disciplines.”
