American Samoa: A group of islands of SAMOA, in the southwest central Pacific. Its capital is Pago Pago. The islands were ruled by native chiefs until about 1869. An object of American interest beginning in 1839, Pago Pago and trading and extraterritorial rights were granted to the United States in 1878. The United States, Germany, and England administered the islands jointly 1889-99, but in 1899 they were granted to the United States by treaty. The Department of the Interior has administered American Samoa since 1951. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p44)Independent State of Samoa: An island group and constitutional monarchy in the southwest central Pacific Ocean. The capital is Apia. The islands were jointly administered by England, the United States, and Germany 1889-99, with the chief islands of Savai'i and Upolu recognized as German until 1919. Western Samoa gained independence in 1962 and assumed its present formal name in 1997.Samoa: A group of islands in the southwest central Pacific, divided into AMERICAN SAMOA and the INDEPENDENT STATE OF SAMOA (Western Samoa). First European contact was made in 1722 by Jacob Roggeveen, a Dutchman. In 1768 they were named Navigators Islands by Louis de Bougainville. The present name may derive from that of a local chieftain or from a local word meaning place of the moa, a now-extinct island bird. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1061 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p481)Petrosia: A genus of SPONGES in the family Petrosiidae, characterized by an ectosomal triangular or polygonal reticulation of spicule tracts or single spicules.Ecological Parameter Monitoring: Ongoing collection, analysis, and interpretation of ecological data that is used to assess changes in the components, processes, and overall condition and functioning of an ECOSYSTEM.Diethylcarbamazine: An anthelmintic used primarily as the citrate in the treatment of filariasis, particularly infestations with Wucheria bancrofti or Loa loa.Micronesia: The collective name for islands of the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines, including the Mariana, PALAU, Caroline, Marshall, and Kiribati Islands. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p761 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p350)Filariasis: Infections with nematodes of the superfamily FILARIOIDEA. The presence of living worms in the body is mainly asymptomatic but the death of adult worms leads to granulomatous inflammation and permanent fibrosis. Organisms of the genus Elaeophora infect wild elk and domestic sheep causing ischemic necrosis of the brain, blindness, and dermatosis of the face.Palau: A republic consisting of a group of about 100 islands and islets in the western Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Koror. Under Spain it was administered as a part of the Caroline Islands but was sold to Germany in 1899. Seized by Japan in 1914, it was taken by the Allies in World War II in 1944. In 1947 it became part of the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, became internally self-governing in 1980, obtained independent control over its foreign policy (except defense) in 1986, and achieved total independence October 1, 1994. (Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p915; telephone communication with Randy Flynn, Board on Geographic Names, 17 January 1995)Cultural Characteristics: Those aspects or characteristics which identify a culture.Polynesia: The collective name for the islands of the central Pacific Ocean, including the Austral Islands, Cook Islands, Easter Island, HAWAII; NEW ZEALAND; Phoenix Islands, PITCAIRN ISLAND; SAMOA; TONGA; Tuamotu Archipelago, Wake Island, and Wallis and Futuna Islands. Polynesians are of the Caucasoid race, but many are of mixed origin. Polynesia is from the Greek poly, many + nesos, island, with reference to the many islands in the group. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p966 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p426)Medicine, Traditional: Systems of medicine based on cultural beliefs and practices handed down from generation to generation. The concept includes mystical and magical rituals (SPIRITUAL THERAPIES); PHYTOTHERAPY; and other treatments which may not be explained by modern medicine.

Soaring and non-soaring bats of the family pteropodidae (flying foxes, Pteropus spp.): wing morphology and flight performance. (1/39)

On oceanic islands, some large diurnal megachiropteran bat species (flying foxes; Pteropus spp.) frequently use thermal or slope soaring during foraging flights to save energy. We compared the flight morphology and gliding/soaring performance of soaring versus non-soaring Pteropus species, one pair on American Samoa and one pair on the Comoro Islands, and two other soaring/flap-gliding species and one non-soaring species. We predicted that the soaring species should have a lower body mass, longer wings and, hence, lower wing loadings than those species that use mainly flapping flight. This would give a lower sinking speed during gliding, a higher glide ratio, and enable the bats to make tighter turns with lower sinking speeds than in the non-soaring species. We theoretically calculated the gliding and circling performances of both the soaring and non-soaring species. Our results show that there are tendencies towards longer wings and lower wing loadings in relation to body size in the gliding/soaring flying foxes than in the non-soaring ones. In the species-pair comparison of the soaring and non-soaring species on American Samoa and the Comoro Islands, the soarers on both islands turn out to have lower wing loadings than their non-soaring partners in spite of opposite size differences among the pairs. These characteristics are in accordance with our hypothesis on morphological adaptations. Most differences are, however, only significant at a level of P<0.1, which may be due to the small sample size, but overlap also occurs. Therefore, we must conclude that wing morphology does not seem to be a limiting factor preventing the non-soarers from soaring. Instead, diurnality in the soaring species seems to be the ultimate determinant of soaring behaviour. The morphological differences cause visible differences in soaring and gliding performance. The glider/soarers turn out to have lower minimum sinking speeds, lower best glide speeds and smaller turning radii than the non-soarers. When the wing measurements and soaring performance are normalized to a body mass of 0.5 kg for all species, the minimum sinking speed becomes significantly lower (P<0.05) in the three soaring and the one flap-gliding species (0.63 m s(-)(1)) than in the three non-soaring species (0.69 m s(-)(1)). Interestingly, the zones in the diagrams for the glide polars and circling envelopes of these similar-sized bats become displaced for the glider/soarers versus the non-soarers. The glide polars overlap slightly only at the gliding speeds appropriate for these bats, whereas the circling envelopes do not overlap at the appropriate bank angles and turning radii. This points towards adaptations for better gliding/soaring performance in the soaring and gliding species.  (+info)

Predictors of papanicolaou smear use among american samoan women. (2/39)

To explore the rate and predictors of Papanicolaou (Pap) smear use among American Samoans, we conducted a survey of 986 randomly selected adult, self-identified Samoan women in American Samoa (n = 323), Hawaii (n = 325), and Los Angeles (n = 338). Only 46% of the women reported having a Pap smears within the past 3 years. These women were more likely than others to reside in Hawaii (odds ratio [OR], 1.7), be less than 40 years of age (OR, 2.2), be married (OR, 1.9), have more than 12 years of formal education (OR, 2.1), have an income of more than $20,000 per year (OR, 1.6), have health insurance (OR, 1.6), and have higher acculturation levels (OR, 1.9). Knowledge and attitudes about cervical cancer did not predict Pap smear screening. It is likely that the low rate of Pap smear screening contributes to the high site-specific incidence of cervical cancer among American Samoan women.  (+info)

Hepatitis C virus infection in Samoa and American Samoa. (3/39)

Little is known about the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in Pacific islands. In this study, serum specimens collected in 1985 and 2002 among the general populations of Samoa and American Samoa were tested for antibody to HCV by a third-generation enzyme immunoassay and a recombinant immunoblot assay. Of the 3,466 specimens tested, 8 (0.2%; 95% confidence interval = 0.07-0.4%) were positive for antibody to HCV. Prevalence did not vary by location or demographic characteristic. Thus, HCV is present in the Samoas but at a low prevalence.  (+info)

Legacy of the Pacific Islander cancer control network. (4/39)

The groundwork for the Pacific Islander cancer control network (PICCN) began in the early 1990s with a study of the cancer control needs of American Samoans. The necessity for similar studies among other Pacific Islander populations led to the development of PICCN. The project's principal objectives were to increase cancer awareness and to enhance cancer control research among American Samoans, Tongans, and Chamorros. PICCN was organized around a steering committee and 6 community advisory boards, 2 from each of the targeted populations. Membership included community leaders, cancer control experts, and various academic and technical organizations involved with cancer control. Through this infrastructure, the investigators developed new culturally sensitive cancer education materials and distributed them in a culturally appropriate manner. They also initiated a cancer control research training program, educated Pacific Islander students in this field, and conducted pilot research projects. PICCN conducted nearly 200 cancer awareness activities in its 6 study sites and developed cancer educational materials on prostate, colorectal, lung, breast, and cervical cancer and tobacco control in the Samoan, Tongan, and Chamorro languages. PICCN trained 9 students who conducted 7 pilot research projects designed to answer important questions regarding the cancer control needs of Pacific Islanders and to inform interventions targeting those needs. The legacy of PICCN lies in its advancement of improving cancer control among Pacific Islanders and setting the stage for interventions that will help to eliminate cancer-related health disparities.

Impact of five annual rounds of mass drug administration with diethylcarbamazine and albendazole on Wuchereria bancrofti infection in American Samoa. (5/39)

American Samoa began a territory-wide mass drug administration (MDA) program with diethylcarbamazine and albendazole in 2000 after baseline surveys indicated that 16.5% of 2,989 residents were infected with Wuchereria bancrofti based on tests for circulating filarial antigen. Follow-up surveys were conducted in 2001, 2003, and 2006, using convenience samples of residents of sentinel villages. Antigenemia prevalence in 2001 (11.5%) and 2003 (13.5%) showed no change. After the 2003 sentinel assessment, improvements were made in the social mobilization and drug distribution strategies. In 2006, after a total of 5 years of MDA and 3 years of improved MDA participation, the antigenemia prevalence dropped from 11.5% (2001) to 0.95% (2006) (P < 0.0001). In 2006, antigenemia prevalence was greater in males (1.5%) than females (0.4%) (P = 0.04). The decline in antigenemia prevalence shows the effectiveness of MDA and changes made in social mobilization and drug distribution.  (+info)

Living with Ma'i Suka: individual, familial, cultural, and environmental stress among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and their caregivers in American Samoa. (6/39)

INTRODUCTION: The U.S. territory of American Samoa has a disproportionate number of people with type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with neighboring Samoa and the U.S. mainland. The purpose of this research was to study perceptions of diabetes among people with type 2 diabetes in American Samoa in order to design culturally appropriate interventions to prevent and manage diabetes effectively. METHODS: Seven focus groups were held with 64 participants at a primary health care facility and a nearby workplace in American Samoa. These focus groups were conducted in the Samoan language and explored perceptions of diabetes, including its meaning, etiology, and the illness experience. Participants were people with diabetes at the health care facility and their family caregivers. RESULTS: Our systematic analysis of the translated transcripts showed that American Samoans with type 2 diabetes experienced individual, familial, cultural, and environmental stress. They also associated environmental and familial stressors with the worsening of symptoms and increases in blood glucose levels. Although participants believed that stress within the family worsened diabetes symptoms, family members figured prominently as primary caregivers. CONCLUSION: Interventions aimed at improving diabetes management in American Samoa should emphasize family involvement coupled with education and methods to reduce caregiver burden, given the chronic, lifelong nature of diabetes.  (+info)

Applying novel genome-wide linkage strategies to search for loci influencing type 2 diabetes and adult height in American Samoa. (7/39)

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a common complex phenotype that by the year 2010 is predicted to affect 221 million people globally. In the present study we performed a genome-wide linkage scan using the allele-sharing statistic Sall implemented in Allegro and a novel two-dimensional genome-wide strategy implemented in Merloc that searches for pairwise interaction between genetic markers located on different chromosomes linked to T2DM. In addition, we used a robust score statistic from the newly developed QTL-ALL software to search for linkage to variation in adult height. The strategies were applied to a study sample consisting of 238 sib-pairs affected with T2DM from American Samoa. We did not detect any genome-wide significant susceptibility loci for T2DM. However, our two-dimensional linkage investigation detected several loci pairs of interest, including 11q22 and 21q21, 9q21 and 11q22, 1p22-p21 and 4p15, and 4p15 and 15q11-q14, with a two-loci maximum LOD score (MLS) greater than 2.00. Most detected individual loci have previously been identified as susceptibility loci for diabetes-related traits. Our two-dimensional linkage results may facilitate the selection of potential candidate genes and molecular pathways for further diabetes studies because these results, besides providing candidate loci, also demonstrate that polygenic effects may play an important role in T2DM. Linkage was detected (p value of 0.005) for variation in adult height on chromosome 9q31, which was reported previously in other populations. Our finding suggests that the 9q31 region may be a strong quantitative trait locus for adult height, which is likely to be of importance across populations.  (+info)

American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States of America. The citizens of American Samoa are US nationals and not US citizens, but they are allowed to travel freely between the American Samoa and the US Mainland. They are not required to obtain green cards or visas to stay or work in the United States, and they are allowed to serve in the US armed forces (and often do). There are some ways that American Samoas special status as an unincorporated territory have interesting legal consequences. The US Constitution is not necessarily the supreme law of the land in American Samoa, and Samoan cultural norms, in particular, those related to the ownership of property and public displays of religion actually trump certain well-settled US constitutional rights in American Samoa.

American (Amerika) Samoa is a group of Polynesian islands in the South Pacific. Fourteen degrees below the equator, it is the United States southern-most territory. It is known as the heart of Polynesia. If you drew a triangle from Hawaii, New Zealand and Tahiti you would find Samoa in the middle. Western Samoa is a neighboring independent country that shares the same culture. American Samoa became an unorganized U.S. territory in 1900. The Samoans arguably represent the largest population of Polynesian people and they take pride in a strong culture that has survived outside incursions amazingly well. For more information about Samoa see Samoa (Western and American). American Samoa is the southernmost unincorporated territory of the United States. It is west of the Cook Islands and north of Tonga and southeast of the Independent State of Samoa (formerly known as Western Samoa).

The vast majority of American Samoas shopping lies on its main island, Tutuila, from American style malls to the lively outdoor Fagatogo Public Market. Affordability is among the main draws of shopping in American Samoa, where American dollars are the default currency and sales tax is non-existent. American Express is the most commonly accepted credit card and most shops close four hours earlier on Saturdays and are closed altogether on Sundays.. Visitors searching for authentic American Samoa handicrafts should avoid purchasing them at Pago Pago International Airport, where most handmade items are actually imported from Tonga.

Methamphetamine use will continue to increase in American Samoa, with a corresponding rise in violent crime. Law enforcement officials may find some small-scale methamphetamine laboratories on the islands, but most supplies of the drug will be smuggled from Hawaii, as in the past. Marijuana use will increase despite harsher penalties for its possession, distribution, and use. Western Samoa will continue as the primary source of supply of marijuana to American Samoa.. Intelligence gaps regarding the drug threat in American Samoa will continue. There are some indications that local authorities recognize that the drug problem is becoming more serious. This may lead to efforts to better quantify the situation in the territory. These efforts, in turn, will lead to additional, more accurate information on which to base future assessments.. ...

The Banner of Freedom (em samoano: Samoa Tulai; em português: A Bandeira da Liberdade) é o hino nacional de Samoa. O título faz referência à bandeira do país, que foi adotado e apresentado com o hino, em 1 de janeiro de 1962, quando a nação passou a ser independente da Nova Zelândia. A obra é de Sauni Iiga Kuresa. Samoa, tulai ma sisi ia lau fua, lou pale lea! Samoa, tulai ma sisi ia lau fua, lou pale lea!

The pre-Western history of Eastern Samoa (now American Samoa) is inextricably bound with the history of Western Samoa (now independent Samoa).. The Tui Manua is one of the oldest Samoan titles in Samoa. Traditional oral literature of Samoa and Manua talks of a widespread Polynesian network or confederacy (or "empire") that was prehistorically ruled by the successive Tui Manua dynasties. Manuan genealogies and religious oral literature also suggest that the Tui Manua had long been one of the most prestigious and powerful paramounts Samoa. Legends suggest that the Tui Manua kings ruled a confederacy of far-flung islands which included Fiji, Tonga[1] as well as smaller western Pacific chiefdoms and Polynesian outliers such as Uvea, Futuna, Tokelau, and Tuvalu. Commerce and exchange routes between the western Polynesian societies is well documented and it is speculated that the Tui Manua dynasty grew through its success in obtaining control over the oceanic trade of currency goods such as ...
Congressman Faleomavaega Eni has written to the Constitutional Accountability Center (CAC), a think tank group law firm based in Washington D.C., voicing his opposition to the groups planned lawsuit in federal court that would make the citizenship clause of the U.S. Constitution apply to persons born in American Samoa.. In his letter this week to the CAC, Faleomavaega explained that the current naturalization process has proved to be burdensome to many American Samoans. "However, I cannot offer my support to the CACs efforts for the simple reason that the issue of U.S. citizenship for American Samoans should be decided by the people of American Samoa and the U.S. Congress, not by a federal court," he said.. According to the Congressman, the groups proposed lawsuit poses much uncertainty as to whether the Samoan culture will be protected or challenged in federal court. He also points out that application of the U.S. Constitution to American Samoa presents significant threats to our Samoan ...
Unificação (ou reunificação) de Samoa (ou Samoa Ocidental), um estado independente, e Samoa Americana, um território dos Estados Unidos, ambas partes das Ilhas Samoa que partilham etnia e cultura, tem sido levantada desde a primeira metade do século XX, após a divisão dos territórios pelas grandes potências (na Convenção Tripartite). Em 1919, a Samoa Ocidental pretendia se unir com a Samoa Americana em Paris. No entanto, seria ao invés disso, incorporada como Protetorado de Samoa Ocidental sob administração britânica de 1920 a 1946 e sob administração da Nova Zelândia a partir de então até 1962. O Comitê Consultivo Inter-Samoano seria criado em 1955 para promover a cooperação entre os dois. Richard Barrett Lowe, governador da Samoa Americana (1953-1956), afirmou que foi decidido que a reunificação com Samoa Ocidental não deveria ser discutida no Comitê. Em 1969, uma comissão política em Samoa Americana rejeitou a unificação com a Samoa independente. Os sentimentos ...

Energy Storage is a major challenge for the renewable-energy industry. With sufficient storage, when the sun isnt shining or wind isnt blowing, intermittent power generation wouldnt be such an issue. Tau, a small island in American Samoa, now gathers enough solar energy for 24/7 power, thanks to a microgrid project completed in November with solar provider SolarCity and Tesla. The system, operated by American Samoa Power Authority, comprises 5,000 SolarCity solar panels and 60 Tesla Powerpack battery-storage systems. It has 6 megawatt-hours of battery storage and can fully recharge in seven hours of sunlight. SolarCity implemented the microgrid in one year, according to the company blog. Tau switched from diesel generators to 100 percent renewable energy with the microgrid, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The microgrid has 1.4 megawatts of solar generation capacity and can power the entire 17-square-mile island for a full day and night. Providing power to a remote ...

Samoan Flying Fox is listed on Appendix I of CITES. Continued enforcement of export bans of this species is necessary to aid recovery. Domestic legislation to regulate hunting is needed over all the species range states. Legal protection is present in some protected areas in Samoa and the National Park of American Samoa, which contains important sites for foraging and roosting (A. Brooke pers. comm.). Local awareness programmes are needed to emphasize the importance of wildlife resources. Key sites for roosting and foraging should be identified and protected (Mickleburgh et al. 1992). Both flying fox species (Pteropus samoensis and Pteropus tonganus) are still under a hunting ban in American Samoa, however, this legislation is temporary (A. Brooke pers. comm.). There is a ban on hunting any bat in American Samoa, but bats are taken for personal consumption as this ban is not widely enforced (A. Brooke pers. comm.). In Fiji, there is a need to assess the distribution (particularly its occurrence ...

There is a mountain on this island nicknamed The Rainmaker and in fact, the port of Pago Pago receives more annual rainfall than any port on Earth. There is a government works department (American Samoa Power Authority, or ASPA) that drills and drills and drills water wells on the island. They dont stop because much of the water they tap is immediately contaminated with sewage (from broken underground sewer pipes) or salt. They also dont stop because the underground water main pipes leak so badly, and increasingly, that more wells are needed to make up for the water that is lost. Because the cost of digging up and repairing the main pipes is prohibitive, its cheaper to keep drilling. And after all this, the water thats piped to homes is not safe to drink. 60,000 residents buy drinking water in plastic bottles or fill containers at machines that vend purified water. ...

This category includes land under flowering shrubs, fruit trees, nut trees, and vines, but excludes land under trees grown for wood or timber. Permanent pasture is land used for five or more years for forage, including natural and cultivated crops.This page has the latest values, historical data, forecasts,

All 28 schools in American Samoa were scheduled to reopen Wednesday after closing Friday, but only four went back into session. Officials will keep schools on the main island of Tutuila closed until next week.

Settled as early as 1000 B.C., Samoa was discovered by European explorers in the 18th century.

The US formally occupied its portion - a smaller group of eastern islands with the excellent harbor of Pago Pago - the following year.. ...
In the commercial coral reef fishery in Pohnpei, acanthurids contribute nearly 30% of the total catch volume and include the most heavily targeted species, N. lituratus and N. unicornis (Rhodes et al. 2008).

In Moorea Is., French Polynesia, a total of 292, 994 individuals was recorded in fish visual surveys conducted from 1990-1993 (Lecchini et al. 2006). It is very abundant on the outer slope of Tiahura (Moussa 2009). It is abundant in the American Samoa National Park (National Park of Samoa Checklist of Fishes accessed 21 April 2010)..

Samoa head coach Stephen Betham is ready for a South African backlash after the Springboks surprise loss to Japan on Saturday.. A 25-16 win got Samoas campaign off to a good start on Sunday and asked about what the Japan result has done to Pool B, Betham was honest in his assessment.. Well give it everything against South Africa. There will probably be a backlash, but well be ready for it, said Betham.. I dont think [the Japan win] changes our thinking.

Our study found that the stress of living with diabetes was individual, familial, cultural, and environmental. This report provides an important context for understanding the complex struggle of living with diabetes in a collectivist society such as American Samoa. Our research also lays the groundwork for the design of culturally appropriate interventions to help manage diabetes in American Samoa.. Several limitations of this study should be mentioned. First, some meaning may have been lost in translation of the transcripts from Samoan to English; time constraints precluded back-translation or verification beyond the perspective of a single translator. Second, although we made every effort to keep all focus groups comparable, 1 of the 7 focus groups was held not at TFHC but at a nearby workplace, which may have introduced exposure bias. In addition, this particular focus group was much larger than the others, having 17 attendees, and caregivers outnumbered participants with diabetes because ...

The dispensary in the Island of Ofu is the only building belonging to the Public Health Department which has been the recipient of ghostly visitations. The site of the building erected in 1923 was Toaga, Ofu, selected because it was convenient for Ofu islanders and also for those of the neighboring island of Olosega. The two are separated by only about 100 yards of water, and it is possible to wade across at low tide.. At once the people of both islands protested, saying Toaga was well known to be the meeting place of the aitu (evil spirits) of the whole of the Manua Group. After the dispensary was built they refused to visit it.. One night, about 1924 (according to the story) the pharmacists mate on duty was called to the door by someone knocking. When he opened up, nobody was to be seen. The knocking was repeated nightly for a while. One night on opening the door, he beheld the apparition of a headless man. Next day, when he was gone on a call, his wife was harassed by unseen persons who, in ...

NILS STOLPE: The New England groundfish debacle (Part IV): Is cutting back harvest really the answer?. While its a fact thats hardly ever acknowledged, the assumption in fisheries management is that if the population of a stock of fish isnt at some arbitrary level, its because of too much fishing. Hence the term "overfished." Hence the mandated knee jerk reaction of the fisheries managers to not enough fish; cut back on fishing. What of other factors? They dont count. Its all about fishing, because fishing is all that the managers can control; its their Maslows Hammer. When it comes to the oceans it seems as if its about all that the industry connected mega-foundations that support the anti-fishing ENGOs with hundreds of millions of dollars a year in "donations" are interested in controlling.

At birth, Samoan babies may be less heavy than expected, but they gain weight 20 percent faster than babies in the U.S. mainland. Breastfeeding appears to slow that gain for male babies but not for females. Credit: Mike Cohea/Brown UniversityStephen McGarvey, research professor of epidemiology and the studys senior author, said the babies were perhaps less heavy at birth than one might expect given the prevalence of obesity among their mothers, but the subsequent weight gain in early infancy was the studys most important finding. Rapid weight gain in infancy is widely understood to be a risk factor for adult obesity.. The median weight gain among the Samoan babies in the first four months of life was 978 grams a month, McGarvey said. That figure is almost 20 percent more than the 820 grams a month documented in a prior study of babies on the U.S. mainland.. The Samoan babies average weight gain curve, he said, resembled the trajectory epidemiologists see among undernourished babies who suffer ...
