Abstract
The relationship between serum alpha-tocopherol level and many of its possible determinants was studied in 1,373 cancer-free Finnish men and women age 40-79 years. Dietary data were available from a subsample of 301 persons. The mean alpha-tocopherol level in the serum samples stored at -20 degrees C was 8.6 mg/liter among men and 10.5 mg/liter among women. Intake of margarine, vegetable oils, and green vegetables predicted the serum level of alpha-tocopherol. Altogether six food groups accounted for about 10% of the variation. The levels also varied with age, geographical area, type of population, occupation, socioeconomic status, and marital status. They were positively correlated with serum cholesterol and serum vitamin A in both sexes, and with body mass index and serum selenium in men. Altogether these variables accounted for over 40% of the variation in alpha-tocopherol levels. The level of serum alpha-tocopherol, which is associated with the dietary intake of vitamin E, is dependent upon living conditions.

Abstract
The purpose of a National Arctic Health Science Policy is to assure that theUnited States is prepared with adequate knowledge to execute its policies fornational development, environmental protection, and national defense in circumarcticlands and seas and mid-latitude cold or mountain regions in amanner that protects and promotes the health and quality of life of peopleliving and working in those regions. The magnitude of federal financial and programcommitments to the provision of health services in the Arctic dictatesvigorous research to make federal operations more effective and efficient.Additionally, the Arctic provides opportunities for research that can enhancethe health of all Americans.Resources for arctic health research currently fall short of national needs; progressis restrained by the absence of policies to coordinate and promoteresearch. This National Arctic Health Science Policy provides a clear statementof national commitment to a vigorous, continuing program of arctic healthresearch.
