Abstract
(1) Among the male Chukotka Natives, neither daily drinkers nor total abstainers were found. The percentage of abstainers among female Natives was also low. (2) Lifetime abstainers were not found among the Chukotka Natives (except in females of the older age groups). (3) Mean doses per typical drinking occasion and mean weekly doses were very high, both among Chukotka males and females (higher than in Western Siberia). (4) Alcohol dependence was very prevalent, particularly "loss of control" and "abstinence," in both men and women. (5) Flushing was found in 12.8% of males and 27% of females. This phenomenon is considered to be atypical, because patch-ethanol test was positive only in 2% of males and 3.5% of females. (6) Heavy drinkers of both sexes were more often found among those who experienced flushing than those who did not. (7) ALDH2 genotype was not found in the Chukotka Natives.

Abstract
Sustainable harvest and wildlife issues continue to be an important part of ICC (Canada)’s efforts. Supporting the hunting, fishing, co-management and subsistence activities of Inuit is evident in virtually all activities of ICC. ICC (Canada) has continued to speak against the animal rights’ lobby and attempts to halt seal harvesting in eastern Canada and has delivered numerous addresses around the world in support of our positions. ICC (Canada) works with IUCN, the World Conservation Union, on animal rights matters and has been active in the International Whaling Commission. Further, ICC (Canada) is an observer in the North American Marine Mammal Commission.
Over the past year, ICC (Canada) had dialogue with the World Wide Fund for Nature (Arctic Programme) and undertook dialogue with various European states including the United Kingdom, Germany and France whose citizens sometime sympathize with animal welfare organizations on these matters. Our Russian project also provided for a strong co-management component to deal with these ongoing issues. While the Arctic Council and other key international mechanisms are reluctant to address sustainable harvest and wildlife issues of relevance to Inuit, ICC (Canada) continues to find other avenues in which to defend the rights of Inuit.

Abstract
A representative sample of Chukotka Natives, males and females aged 25-64 years, was surveyed. We investigated the hemoglobin level by hemoglobincyanide method, the number of red blood cells and leucocytes on an automatic counter, relative and absolute numbers of leucocytes. Leucopenia was revealed in 24.4% of men and 35.1% of women, which is higher than among Novosibirsk residents. Anemia among men (hemoglobin level

Abstract
A representative sample of Chukotka Natives (n=170) aged 25-64 and a similar sample of West Siberia residents (n=819) were studied by standardized methods and echocardiography. Acquired and congenital cardiac defects and anomalies were observed in Chukotka in 10% of cases, valvular prolapses in 25%, and three times less often in Novosibirsk. Myocardial scars were not found in Natives, whereas they were found in 1.4% in Siberia. The prevalence of atherosclerosis in the abdominal aorta and left coronary artery was from 8% to 11% in Chukotka. Left ventricular hypertrophy was observed two times more often in the Chukotka population than in the Siberian one. The results confirm the correlations between increased n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in membranes and increased myocardium mass in coastal Natives.
