HOLY SHIT, where to start????????
1. Eskimo women are exposed to far faR fAR FAR less sunlight then others. 
If you would have taken my suggestion and get a PHYSIOLOGY BOOK you would
have known why this is important.  I will give you a hint: "vitamin D
conversion in the skin".
2. Eskimos are a very isolated population.  The fact that they do not mix
there DNA much with others (and has been this way for 1000s of years), it
is safe to say that if they have genetic abnormalities, it will show up in
high frequencies.

Calcium levels are HIGHLY REGULATED.  Know the players(aka hormones) and
you will get a clue on the sytem.

Once again, before I decide to get nasty, WHERE IS YOUR EVIDENCE THAT A

Stuart I am coming to the conclusion that you are living proof in the saying:
