Hazard ratios (HRs) for total mortality according to total fat intake by sex. HRs within the first to third quintiles and the lower and upper halves of the fourth and top quintiles of total fat intake (%E) are shown for men (A; n = 23,115) and women (B; n = 35,557). The reference group comprised participants with the lowest quintile of fat intake (%E). HRs were adjusted for age, area, education, smoking, alcohol consumption, BMI, sleep duration, walking, consumption of vegetables and fruit, and total energy intake. HRs with 95% confidence intervals (shown as error bars) are plotted against median intake of fat (%E) in each category. The 95% confidence intervals for the second to third quintiles and lower and upper halves of the fourth and top quintiles of intake (%E), from lowest through to highest intake, were 0.95–1.12, 0.93–1.10, 0.94–1.15, 0.83–1.02, 0.98–1.20, and 0.96–1.17 for men, and 0.94–1.11, 0.92–1.09, 0.81–1.01, 0.77–0.96, 0.80-1.00, and 0.89–1.12 for women, respectively.
