Abstract
From Introduction: This report represents a significant first-step to synthesize environmental information and to use that information to inform others about future conditions and potential outcomes in the BCB region for people and their communities. As such, many scientific uncertainties were identified and information needs noted as they pertain to climate change adaptation planning. Human needs and considerations tend to be considered holistically throughout. This is somewhat novel, especially given that multiple nations (USA, Canada, and Russia) and governance structures are involved. There is a message throughout that ecosystem-level information is a necessary component for understanding climate effects and their interactions, including changing conditions far-removed from the BCB region. The latter includes environmental effects or changes in the marketplace due to globalization. There is strong agreement throughout the report that continuing subsistence activities will be a critical element of food security despite local participation in the cash economy. Subsistence lifestyles and resources must be protected through effective management across the entire BCB region. Within the planning dimension, scenarios could be more effectively employed to guide these strategies by applying the information assembled in this report.

Abstract
Once, not too long ago and within the living memory of Native Alaskans, the Arctic was a pristine wilderness where POPs were never used and could not be detected in wildlife or humans. But the face of Alaska is changing, with increasing urbanization, industrialization, extractive resource activity, and commercial and social contacts with the global community. Accompanying these changes are concerns that the physical, climatic, and social aspects that make Alaska unique--particularly for the indigenous population--also make this region peculiarly prone to risks from global pollutants.

Abstract
This edition of the Alaska MCH Data Book will provide policy makers, public health professionals and health care providers with critical data on leading issues affecting women before, during and after pregnancy, and preschool age children. This book is unique in that it reports all analyses by Alaska Native status and, in some cases, by tribal health region. The goal of this book is to provide data that can be used in both tribal and non-tribal programs to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate programs. By focusing on Alaska Native status these data will be particularly helpful to health care staff and administrators in areas of rural Alaska that serve predominantly Alaska Native people. Please share with us how you have used the data published here. You may contact the PRAMS/CUBS staff by e-mail at mch-epi@alaska.gov or by phone at 1-888-269-3470.

Abstract
Evidence of nutrition and epidemiologic transition in Inuit communities prompted a case study where traditional knowledge and traditional food is used as a basis for a community health-promotion effort to help improve overall diet quality including healthy market food choices. The current Inuit diet in the Baffin community involves a mix of traditional and market food. Caribou was the most commonly consumed traditional food item. Overall, 41 percent of energy was obtained from traditional food among 62 percent of respondents reporting traditional food consumption within the past 24 hours in the community health screening. Simultaneously, 58 percent of adults reported consuming an average of two cans of carbonated beverages in the past day, amounting to 10 percent of energy intake. Furthermore, the percent of n-3 fatty acids in plasma as a marker of traditional food consumption was inversely related to the percent of transfat in plasma as a marker of unhealthy market food choices (Spearman rho = -.44, p-value =.01). The data illustrate that traditional food is replaced by unhealthy market food choices.
A high prevalence of metabolic syndrome was observed (34 percent of 47 non-diabetic participants) using the new International Diabetes Federation criteria. Further, food insecurity was commonly reported, with 48 percent indicating that it was true or sometimes true that they “eat less or skip a meal because there isn’t enough money to buy food”; and 28 percent indicating “yes” to “in the last month there was not enough to eat in your house”. Fortunately, nearly all respondents (82 percent) indicated that friends and relatives shared their traditional food. The data illustrate that costs of market food items need to be considered in health promotion campaigns, and that traditional food promotion and sharing networks can help mitigate the rapid acculturation and transitions being observed. Finally, using traditional knowledge of indigenous food systems may be an effective way to promote healthy market food choices in an effort to prevent the adverse effects of acculturation.

Abstract
Summary: The Arctic is undergoing rapid and dramatic environmental and social transformations due to climate change. This has ramifications for the entire planet, as change spreads through interconnected global networks that are environmental, cultural, economic and political. Today, with the major thrust of research shifting away from deciphering causes and monitoring trends, the central preoccupation of a growing circle of actors has become the exploration of strategies for responding and adapting to climate change. This book brings together the concerns of leading Arctic scientists in the natural and social sciences, prominent Chukchi, Even, Inuit and Saami leaders from across the circumpolar North, and international experts in education, health and ethics. It highlights the urgent need for a sustained interdisciplinary and multi-actor approach to monitoring, managing and responding to climate change in the Arctic, and explore avenues by which this can be achieved.--Publisher's description.
