Hmmm, I learned something new. I didn't know Inuits had a high incidence of osteoporosis. I know they have a low incidence of diabetes and cancer when compared to Western society. I don't know if the osteoporosis is entirely due to their diet though. They live in probably the harshest climate any humans are living in, their diet lacks any real variety, and there are probably innumerable other factors I'm missing. That is a very interesting fact though.

I know marijuana is legal in Alaska, maybe, the Inuits should ask the potheads about hydroponic gardening and start growing hydroponic spinach.
