Risk communication
Abstract
During the last decades, environmental studies have found concerning quantities of contaminants in the Arctic food chain. Increasingly, the Inuit have to deal with the fact that the information available (biological, physical, chemical) is quite difficult to comprehend and often misconstrued through media distortion. In Nunavik, a first step toward community-based environmental risk communications was undertaken. After a preliminary survey found concerning levels of contaminants in breast milk, a detailed research program was initiated and a resource committee was set up to disseminate information on the ongoing research activities and also on the issue of the contamination of the food chain by organochlorines. This communication will present a summary of events linked with the committee's activities and a discussion on the uneasy task of communicating risks.

Abstract
Persons invited to attend the Conference on Man's Health in a Changing Arctic Environment included representatives of government, education, industry, professions and the general public. Scientific disciplines involved were public health, biomedicine, the behavioral sciences, engineering, ecology, economics and education. Each person on the list was invited to submit an Issue Paper for purposes of background and discussion in the Conference. The response was gratifying. Thirty papers were submitted, representing a cross-section of interests and viewpoints. A perusal of this variety of material will be most useful--and probably fascinating--to all participants in the Conference. The papers are presented here just as they were received--unedited and retaining the flavor and personal style of each author.
