  1. Cardiac mortality in Alaska's indigenous and non-native residents.

    Article - En anglais

    Cardiac disease mortality in Alaska, from both ischaemic and rheumatic heart disease, is of interest given the high consumption of fish and high streptococcal disease rates in the indigenous population.

    Uniformly coded underlying cause-of-death data for the period 1979-1988, compared with that from 1955-1965, indicated that deaths from all cardiac diseases combined, have been increasing in Alaska Natives over the past 30 years.

    Recent mortality from all cardiac, ischaemic, and rheumatic heart diseases in Alaska Natives were 80%, 61%, and 202% of those corresponding levels in Alaskan whites, whose cardiac mortality closely profiles US whites.
