Abstract
Cadmium and lead have been classified as carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. However, their associations with breast cancer risk are unknown despite their persistence in the environment and ubiquitous human exposure. We examined associations of circulating levels of cadmium and lead with breast cancer risk in three case-control studies nested within the Cancer Prevention Study-II (CPS-II) LifeLink Cohort, European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition - Italy (EPIC-Italy) and the Northern Sweden Health and Disease Study (NSHDS) cohorts. Metal levels were measured in stored erythrocytes from 1,435 cases and 1,433 controls using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry. Summary relative risks (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated using random-effects models with each study result weighted by the within- and between-study variances. I2 values were calculated to estimate proportion of between study variation. Using common cut-points, cadmium levels were not associated with breast cancer risk in the CPS-II cohort (continuous RR = 1.01, 95% CI 0.76-1.34), but were inversely associated with risk in the EPIC- Italy (continuous RR = 0.80, 95% CI 0.61-1.03) and NSHDS cohorts (continuous RR = 0.73, 95% CI 0.54-0.97). The inverse association was also evident in the meta-analysis (continuous RR = 0.84, 95% CI 0.69-1.01) with low between-study heterogeneity. Large differences in lead level distributions precluded a meta-analysis of their association with breast cancer risk; no associations were found in the three studies. Adult cadmium and lead levels were not associated with higher risk of breast cancer in our large meta-analysis.

Abstract
The Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) is Canada’s oldest citizen’s organization dedicated to environmental sustainability in the Arctic. We have a long history commenting on environmental assessments and policy in the Canadian North. For decades, we have also been a vocal supporter of caribou conservation for their own sake and for those who rely on them.
CARC believes that all strategic undertaking of policy in the Arctic must include total protection of caribou populations; this includes full environmental assessments on all development including roads, oil and gas extraction and mining and that these economic activities should do no harm or impede on the health of caribou populations. The caribou must be protected and thriving for their own sake and for the sake of food security and cultural autonomy of the Indigenous peoples who live in the north. Protection of caribou, a keystone species in the Arctic, will ensure a wider ecology in the Arctic is protected for future generations.
Arctic policy should affirm the value of Indigenous traditional knowledge and provide a framework for its use in management and decision-making. It should be used alongside western science and expertise; we need to make room for this knowledge in our thinking and planning.
Arctic policy must address climate change and how it is impacting the north. People need help now. For example, snowmobiles do not travel on rocks that are no longer covered in ice, the ground has become unstable for homes and offices near coastlines, ice as a route to hunting grounds for both people and caribou is evaporating, and warmer weather also means different hunting and fishing seasons, some now very unsafe.
We believe the government must support local economies in the north and listen and yield to their needs. Arctic policy is required that works at a local level, from the ground up. Arctic policy must respect the Truth and Reconciliation recommendations as well as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It must be innovative and forward thinking and not rely on the status quo or business as usual. Arctic policy should be nimble and helpful to those who live there.

Abstract
Tribes have historically played an important role in environmental issues including air quality and climate change. Tribal citizens are often disproportionately affected by air pollution, while their governments play an increasingly valuable role in controlling and reducing pollution and its adverse health effects. Tribes are also particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change andare taking steps to prepare forand become more resilient to these changes. Learn about the environmental programs and technical assistance regarding air quality on tribal lands.
