"Eating for outsiders": cancer causation discourse among Iñupiat of Arctic Alaska / Joslyn Cassady.

Title: "Eating for outsiders": cancer causation discourse among Iñupiat of Arctic Alaska / Joslyn Cassady.
Author(s): Cassady, Joslyn.
Date: 2008.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2008.), Vol. 67(4) (2008)
Abstract: Reports qualitative research conducted in north-west Alaska over 30 months (including eight months accompanying Iñupiaq family on seasonal rounds to hunting and fishing camps). Finds Iñupiat speak of cancer as germ-induced condition emerging from "outside" (routes of infection include ingestion of contaminated food and water, as well as inhalation or injection of outside agents); also Iñupiaq discourse about cancer prevention focuses on consuming foods that strengthen blood, including meat harvested from country. Educational efforts focusing on lowering risk by eating diets low in meat and fat and high in fruit and vegetables are rejected as assault by outsiders on traditional hunting lifestyle.
