Health impact mechanisms on the Native Alaska people because of climate change and contaminants in the Arctic.

Health impact mechanisms on the Native Alaska people because of climate change and contaminants in the Arctic include:

  • The effect of contaminant transport on subsistence foods.
  • The spread of zoonotic disease (diseases animals can give to people).
  • Damage to permafrost-dependent infrastructure.
  • Unintentional injury.
  • Extreme weather events.

Research investigated the potential health and medical benefits of wild berries to Alaska Natives.

Research investigated the potential health and medical benefits of wild berries to Alaska Natives. Analyses indicated that the amylase-inhibiting activity of berries slows down the process of turning starch into sugar (i.e., it has an important impact on diabetes); berries contain varying levels of antioxidants; and protease inhibitors in berries may help fight HIV/AIDS, parasitic diseases, and metabolic disorders.

Tribal communities engage in active, outdoor lifestyles

Tribal communities engage in active, outdoor lifestyles in all climates, with greater environmental contact rates in comparison to members of the suburban community. This project systematically described how Tribal people interact with the environment and how they might be exposed to environmental contaminants.
