Abstract
Ethnic minorities (e.g., Hispanics, blacks, Asian-Americans, and Native Americans) are still underrepresented in alcohol research in the United States. Furthermore, existing studies often do not take into consideration the variability that exists within each ethnic group, resulting in inaccurate generalizations. Studies among Hispanics have found substantial differences among Hispanic subgroups in drinking patterns and rates of alcohol-related problems. Moreover, no single variable can explain the observed patterns. Similarly, numerous factors have been shown to shape drinking patterns among blacks, including individual and environmental characteristics as well as historical and cultural factors. Different subgroups of Asian-Americans also vary substantially in their rates of drinking and heavy drinking, although their lifetime alcohol use is lower than the national average. Genetic and cultural factors, as well as stress and historic experiences, may influence drinking patterns of Asian-Americans. The widely differing drinking patterns among Native Americans also are likely shaped by a variety of influences.

Abstract
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program addresses levels of environmental chemicals in abiotic and biotic components of the Arctic ecosystem, temporal and spatial trends, the fate of pollutants in the environment, and their effects on the food chain and humans. One of the principal tasks of AMAP continues to be the assessment of implications and impacts of pollution on the health of Arctic residents, residents both indigenous and non-indigenous to the region. The third AMAP Human Health assessment seeks to update the 2002 AMAP Human Health assessment with the latest data and analysis rather than to provide a new independent assessment. The report synthesizes the latest research results from circumpolar countries, building upon previous assessments of environmental chemicals and the variety of their impacts on the health of Arctic populations. Therefore, to benefit most from this work the reader should be familiar with previous assessments.

Abstract
An international project of the Arctic Council and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) to evaluate and synthesize knowledge on climate variability, climate change, and increased ultraviolet radiation and their consequences.
Notes
The 2004 Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) was prepared in response to a request from the Ministers of the Arctic Council, and is a follow-up to a preliminary evaluation of Arctic climate change issues included in the 1997/98 AMAP assessment.
The objective of the ACIA - as defined in the Arctic Council Ministers 'Barrow Declaration' - was “to evaluate and synthesize knowledge on climate variability and change and increased ultraviolet radiation, and support policy-making processes and the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).” ACIA should address “environmental, human health, social, cultural, and economic impacts and consequences, including policy recommendations.”
The assessment was produced by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) in collaboration with the Arctic Council's Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) working group, and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and was coordinated by AMAP. More than 250 scientists and six circumpolar indigenous peoples’ organisations participated in the ACIA.
ACIA was the first comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic. As such it represents a baseline for later work (including work under the 2011 Arctic cryospheric change - SWIPA - project coordinated by AMAP).
ACIA was also a milestone in that it was the first Arctic Council assessment to comprehensively include social science as well as natural science components - to assess the imacts of climate change on socio-economic conditions in the Arctic. Results of the ACIA were fed into the IPCC fourth assessment process and were instrumental in raising the profile of Arctic Climate Change issues in the UNFCCC and subsequent IPCC work.

Abstract
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), established in 1991 under the Arctic Environmental Protection Strategy (AEPS), was given the responsibility to monitor the levels and assess the effects of selected anthropogenic pollutants in all compartments of the Arctic. This is the first AMAP assessment report, and it represents a collaborative effort involving over 400scientists and administrators. It is based on AMAP-coordinatednational and international monitoring programs within the eight Arctic countries, in combination with data and information from several research programs, including contributions from non-Arctic countries and international organizations.

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of iron status on cadmium dose among pregnant women. METHODS: Iron status and cadmium concentration in blood, urine, and placenta were determined among women followed for 2 years from early pregnancy. RESULTS: Blood cadmium and urinary cadmium were correlated with iron status throughout the study period. Urinary cadmium increased longitudinally among women with exhausted iron stores during their pregnancy. The increase in urinary cadmium with age was more pronounced in multiparous than in nulliparous women. CONCLUSIONS: Iron deficiency during pregnancy leads to increased cadmium absorption and body burden. Multiparous women exhibit additional increases with increasing age.

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.
