In Response To: Inuits (Jon (A+ non-sec ))

Let's get the facts straight. It is not meat but omega-3 polyunsaturates which is a feature of the traditional Eskimo diet and responsible for the low rate of cardiovascular disease amongst the Inuits. And don't forget, when they changed to a more Western diet it also meant overconsuming meats (this time without Omega-3) amongst other things. And the Eskimos love their meat.

In this case, one of the first such observations was reported by Kronman & Green, who found that Eskimos living in their traditional areas had virtually no heart disease. Dyerberg & Bang investigated this, and concluded that the "cause" of this "effect" was most likely the relatively large intake of omega-3 polyunsaturates which is a feature of the traditional Eskimo diet. Since then, several other studies (Dolecek & Grandits, Kromhout Bosschieter & Coulander) have revealed much the same thing, i.e. that populations with a high intake of fish (or more correctly, the omega-3 polyunsaturates from fish) have a low incidence of death from heart attack. In 1997 (Daviglus et al) and again in 1998, these ideas have been confirmed by large American studies (Albert et al), with up to a 50% reduction in the risk of death from a heart attack among weekly fish eaters when compared to those who ate fish only infrequently.
