Abstract [en]

The Sami, the indigenous people of northern Sweden, have a life expectancy equal to the life expectancy of the country’s majority population and a reduced risk of cancer. Dietary score methodology is a way of applying a culturally defined dietary pattern to any population. Studies on Mediterranean and traditional Sami dietary patterns in a circumpolar context confirm evidence-based dietary guidelines, but the low-carbohydrate dietary pattern does not. Knowledge of food culture and nutritional transitions is important when interpreting risk associations connected to culturally defined dietary patterns.
