    Atherosclerosis. 2008 Aug;199(2):346-53. Epub 2007 Dec 4.

    Conclusions
    Dietary intake of omega-3 FAs in a moderate-to-high range does not appear to be associated with reduced plaque, but is negatively associated with IMT. The presence and extent of carotid atherosclerosis among Eskimos is higher with increasing consumption of saturated FAs.

    Prevalence and correlates of subclinical atherosclerosis in Alaska Eskimos: the GOCADAN study.
    Cutchins A, Roman MJ, Devereux RB, Ebbesson SO, Umans JG, Zhu J, Weissman NJ, Howard BV.
    Stroke. 2008 Nov;39(11):3079-82. Epub 2008 Jul 10.
    PMID: 18617652
    doi: 10.1161/STROKEAHA.108.519199

    Conclusions- Alaska Eskimos have similar traditional risk factors for carotid atherosclerosis as other ethnic and racial populations but have higher prevalences of atherosclerosis, possibly attributable to higher rates of smoking.
