Abstract
The association of blood pressure and the concentration of cadmium in the blood was examined in 227 reindeer herding males living in Finnish Lapland. Subjects with blood cadmium higher than 10 nmol/l showed higher systolic blood pressure than others (143 mmHg vs. 136 mmHg), a similar trend being observed for diastolic pressure (89 vs. 86 mmHg). The rise in systolic blood pressure was particularly pronounced in patients with diagnosed arterial hypertension. The associations were not affected by age, body mass index, smoking, and alcohol consumption. The results suggest that a low-level environmental exposure to cadmium may increase blood pressure, especially in patients suffering from arterial hypertension.

Abstract
Objectives. The Sami are regarded as indigenous people of Scandinavia and northwest Russia. Their traditional dwelling zone consists of the most northern parts of those countries. The Sami consist of rather small groups that have been living in isolation for a long time in harsh circumstances. Because there was not much data about the health and diseases of these Finnish ethnic minorities, the health of the Sami is the object of this dissertation, approached in terms of cause specific mortality, cancer incidence and the cancer patient survival.
Material and methods. All persons living in the two northern municipalities of Finland (Inari and Utsjoki) on 31st December 1978 were identified from the National Population Register. The Sami cohort was extracted from that by using the grouping of Sami of the International Biological Program, Human Health Adaptability-study. Dates of death and emigration of the cohort members were obtained from the Population Register. Follow-up for cancer through the files of the population-based countrywide Finnish Cancer Registry was done using the personal identification code as the key. The first period of the follow-up for mortality and cancer started on 1st January 1979 and ended at death or on 31st December 2005 (Study I, mortality), on 31st December 1998 (Study II, cancer), and on 31th December 2009 (Study IV, survival of cancer patients). The second period started on 1st January 2006 and ended 31st December 2010 (Study I) and Study II started on 1st January 1999, and ended on 31st December 2010. In Study III, a comparison of several cancer studies from Finland, Sweden and Norway from different time periods between the years 1961–2006 was made. A person representing at least 75 per cent of any ethnic group of Sami was classified as Sami. A non-Sami is a person without any Sami ethnicity, and the remaining persons were classified into the mixed group. The Sami group was divided into subcategories of North Sami, Inari Sami and Skolt Sami with the same principle: to be classified in a specific Sami subgroup, a person had to represent at least 75 per cent of this type of the three specific Sami ethnicity. In Study III, in Sweden and Norway the defining of Sami people for epidemiological studies has been different. In Sweden, all possible registers have been combined to find the Sami, and in Norway, the defining is concentrated to the Sami counties and the interview. In all countries, the Sami have mixed more or less with the main population, and therefore the Finnish cohort was recalculated for Study III. The Finnish cohort in that study has included all Sami with 1–100% of Saminess.

Abstract
The Arctic regions are inhabited by diverse populations, both indigenous and non-indigenous. 'Health Transitions in Arctic Populations' describes and explains changing health patterns in these areas, how particular patterns came about, and what can be done to improve the health of Arctic peoples. This collaborative study correlates changes in health status with major environmental, social, economic, and political changes in the Arctic. Together the contributors explore commonalities in the experiences of different peoples while recognizing their considerable diversity. The volume focuses on five Arctic regions--Greenland, Northern Canada, Alaska, Arctic Russia, and Northern Fennoscandia. A general overview of the geography, history, economy, population characteristics, health status, and health services of each region is provided and followed by discussion of specific indigenous populations, major health determinants and outcomes, and, finally, an integrative examination of what can be done to improve the health of circumpolar peoples. 'Health Transitions in Arctic Populations' offers both a detailed examination of key health issues in the North and a vision for the future well-being of Arctic inhabitants.

Abstract
This chapter provides an introduction to the inhabitants of the Arctic. While there is insufficient space to explore the extent of information that exists in the written literature or in the oral traditions of indigenous cultures, the information given here is intended to help understand how contaminants may affect Arctic residents, and to encourage further investigation of these effects. The impacts that both contaminants and, more insidiously, the fear of contaminants have on, in particular, indigenous peoples and cultures demonstrate the need for effective communication and for preventing contamination that may lead to adverse effects on Arctic peoples.
