Figure 1

Hazard ratios of all-cause and cardiovascular disease-related mortality among people with metabolic syndrome. Adjusted for age (continuous), sex (men and women), smoking status (never, former, current or unknown), physical activity index (High, Medium, Low or Inactive), marital status (married or unmarried, widow or widower, divorced or separated), education level attained (≤10 years, 11 to 14 years, ≥15 years or unknown), alcohol consumption (frequency during past two weeks: none, one to four, at least five or total abstainer) and occupational activity (mostly sedentary, much walking, much walking and lifting, heavy physical work or unknown).Squares and diamonds represent risk estimates, and bars represent 95% CI. People without metabolic syndrome (represented by coloured diamonds and squares) served as the reference group.
