Abstract
The cancer pattern among Inuit in the Circumpolar area is remarkably different from those of other populations in the world. The current paper summarizes the most important risk factors in Canadian Inuit residing in the Northwest Territories, northern Quebec (Nunavik) and Labrador, particularly during the time period 1969-1988 covered by the study. Factors considered include: the geographic area and physical environment; population and human environment, including fertility and life expectancy; lifestyle and diet, including tobacco and alcohol use; other lifestyle factors, and health conditions; and health services and cultural accessibility. Development of the cancer registry and population databases supporting the analysis of cancer rates is described. The information in the present paper is needed to interpret cancer incidence patterns and differences among the Circumpolar Inuit of Canada, Alaska and Greenland.

Abstract
In Intersalt, positive relations between 24-hour urinary sodium and potassium excretion and blood pressure were observed in over 10,000 men and women in 52 centers around the world. Body mass index (BMI), alcohol intake and smoking showed different associations with blood pressure in various population groups. We investigated these variables in the 2 Canadian centers and could not confirm the sodium-potassium relationship. In a multiple stepwise regression analysis, BMI and alcohol had the strongest relation with blood pressure in men. Among the female participants, BMI and sodium were the most influential factors on systolic blood pressure. For diastolic blood pressure, BMI and smoking showed the strongest significance. Neither in men nor in women could the influence of high sodium and low potassium excretion on blood pressure be discerned.
