Abstract
Objectives: Experimentally to assess the possibility of development of the anti-aging physiological trends in animal organism, intrauterine developing at the high solar activity and intake of the helio-geroprotectors. Study design: Some light and water helio-geroprotectors, patented in Russia, have been developed and tested for animals and inhabitants of the circumpolar regions, being intrauterine developed at the high solar activity. Methods: Computer program "Helios" (for analysis of heliogeophysical environment during the prenatal period of development). Analysis of carbon stable isotope (13C) in tissue, blood testosterone, hemodynamic parameters. Results: In the Far North man lifespan is associated with state of heliophysical medium in the prenatal period. It was shown that maximum polar length of lifespan and possible man reserves were detected at minimum solar activity in 1st and 2nd months of the intrauterine development. Intake of helio-geroprotectors appears have anti-aging effects in animal and man organisms. They are an increased content of carbon stable isotope (23C), level of blood testosterone and decreased man organism functional dependence on intensity of the heliophysical factors (protons, electrons) during the tests. Conclusion: The helio-geroprotective effect, being important for health preservation and enhancing of man lifespan in the northern regions of the planet is possible.

Abstract
The "Arctic as a food producing region" is a project funded by the Nordic Council of Ministries, the Canadian Arctic Council office, the University of Saskatchewan (Canada), the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Nofima – Norwegian Institute of Food, fisheries and Aquaculture Research, the Icelandic Foreign Ministry, and endorsed by the Arctic Council Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG). The project has participation from Canada, Denmark, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Russia. The aim of the "Arctic as a food producing region" - project is to assess the potential for increased production and added value of food from the Arctic region, with the overarching aim of improving economic and social conditions of Arctic communities. This report is the output from the first phase of the project, providing a description of the main food production and examples of conditions for food production in the Arctic areas of the countries involved.

Abstract
The SLiCA anthology probes into the theoretical and methodological background of the SLiCA project, the research design, the ethical principles applied and introduces examples of the wealth of information available on the livelihoods and living conditions of the Inuit, Saami and the indigenous peoples of Chukotka and the Kola Peninsula, measured with quality of life criteria they themselves chose. Furthermore the anthology provides samples of analyses - including comparative and contextual studies - that can be accomplished using SLiCA data. Examples of living conditions and topics analysed are: 'suicidal thoughts'; impacts of oil development on living conditions and quality of life; economic stratification; objective and subjective living conditions; education; gender based differences in productive activities; impacts of societal development on men's and women's perceptions of their contributions to their households; factors affecting migration, identity, ethnicity, and herding rights.

Abstract
This report is part of a contribution to the Risk Communication Report on Mercury and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) that is currently being prepared by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) Human Health Assessment Group (HHAG), through Health Canada. The AMAP HHAG (an expert group operating within Arctic Council) identified “risk communication on chemicals and the traditional diet” as an important knowledge gap. It has been found in the last 10 – 15 years that the development and communication of public health messages on environmental contaminants in the circumpolar region is difficult. Additionally, the growth in new epidemiological and toxicological research on subtle health effects from contaminants poses new challenges to developing clear and consistent public health messages. To address this gap in knowledge, HHAG has initiated a Risk Communication Project, with the risk communication report as an initial activity. The objective of this report is to provide a synthesis of information and other relevant information on risk communication in the circumpolar region. Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) Canada was contracted to provide input into this report. This contribution focuses on identifying the different approaches and Inuit views with respect to risk communication in the circumpolar Arctic. ICC would like to acknowledge and thank all contributors of information, who made this report possible. A second contribution by ICC Canada describes ICC Canada’s experience in risk communication in international fora.

Abstract
Demographic records on population movements in the Arctic tell compelling stories about community change, especially when combined with health statistics and qualitative data. Chukotka went through several dramatic demographic shifts during the twentieth century: influx of newcomer populations during the Sovietization of the Russian Arctic, large-scale village relocations during the Cold War, and labor outmigration after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The new demographic regimes had wide-ranging effects on social cohesion and community health. Focusing on the spillover effects of demographic change on local communities, this article contextualizes displacement events using demographic data, health statistics, and oral histories.

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: Investigation was carried out within the framework of the large-scale international project "Persistent Toxic Substances (PTS), Food Security and Indigenous People of the Russian North" under RAIPON/AMAP/GEF aegis. Objectives of the project are to obtain comprehensive information on exposure of indigenous populations to contaminants through food chains (and other sources), and to investigate the possible health effects connected to this exposure. Four regions of Russia are involved in the project: Kola Peninsula (Murmansk oblast), Nenetsk okrug (Pechora river basin), Taimyr Peninsula, Chukotka Peninsula. METHODS: Questionnaire and paired sampling of maternal/cord blood among indigenous women at childbirth (more than 250 persons) as well as among general indigenous population (more than 1,400 persons), additionally breast milk sampling of lactating women (more than 50 persons) in Chukotka was conducted. About 700 blood samples have been analyzed at the Center for Environmental Chemistry, SPA "Typhoon" (Obninsk, Russia), the Regional Center "Monitoring of the Arctic", RCMA (St. Petersburg, Russia), the Norwegian Institute for Air Research, NILU (Tromso, Norway) and at INSPQ (Sainte-Foy, Quebec, Canada).
