Abstract
Cardiovascular risk factors and their association with diet were examined in Saami (Lapp) and Finnish reindeer herders (total sample size 2705). The Saami men showed lower systolic blood pressure (130 mmHg) than the Finns (137 mmHg), higher serum total cholesterol (6.92 vs. 6.51 mmol/l) and triglycerides (1.32 vs. 1.11 mmol/l), and more Saami than Finnish men were smokers (34% vs. 27%). Subjects eating reindeer meat daily showed serum cholesterol 0.6 mmol/l higher than those who did so once a month or more rarely, the association being independent of age, season, body mass index, or consumption of coffee, milk, bread, fish, or alcohol. The high content of antioxidants of the Saami diet might explain why cardiovascular diseases are relatively uncommon in the Saami area despite the adverse risk factor pattern.

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
Chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection has been associated with atherosclerosis by seroepidemiological studies. Further, acute bacterial infections are known to influence lipid metabolism. To clarify the possible pathogenetic mechanisms of this association, we studied serum lipids and the C. pneumoniae IgG antibody titers of 1,053 males who participated in the reindeer herders health survey in Northern Finland in 1986-1989. The mean age of the study group was 47 years (range 20-87). When comparing nonsmoking C. pneumoniae antibody-positive (IgG > or = 32) subjects to those with no antibodies, the age-adjusted mean concentration of triglycerides was increased (1.34 vs. 1.04 mmol/l; p = 0.03) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) was decreased (1.24 vs. 1.35 mmol/l; p

Abstract
The aim of the present work was to study, using a questionnaire, at which ambient temperature the forestry workers subjectively experience the disadvantages caused by cold. The disadvantages were classified according to criteria of thermophysiology, physical performance, and health. Three levels were used: discomfort, performance degradation, and health problems. The questionnaire was mailed to 490 forestry workers, 347 (71%) of whom responded. The results show that workers (who had experienced cold as harmful moderately often or more frequently) experienced cold as discomfortable on average at -19.4 ± 7.0 degrees C (mean ± SD). Performance degradation was experienced at -23.3 ± 5.7 degrees C and health problems at -24.7 ± 6.7 degrees C. Similar problems were experienced, on average, at a 1 degree C higher temperature traveling to work and from work, and a 4 degree C higher temperature during pauses.
