    From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Islands of the South Pacific".

It's an excellent colonizer, capable of surviving long periods of time floating along until chance might have it bump into a patch of warm soil on which to root. The coconut is an indispensable ingredient in Polynesian life. Its milk provides a nourishing beverage. It is also dried into Copra for use in cooking oil and body oil.

The coconut is an indispensable ingredient in Polynesian life. Its milk provides a nourishing beverage. It is also dried into Copra for use in cooking oil and body oil. The coconuts are even used by children as flotation devices! But, most of all, it is the basis for almost every traditional dish in the Polynesian diet. Basic staple dishes include a concoction of Taro leaf, which is much like spinach when cooked, onion and corned beef. This is wrapped in a banana leaf and the coconut milk is added last. for dessert the mixture might be papaya slices and coconut milk. After wrapping, the bundles are placed in the pre-heated Umu or underground oven along with Taro root or yams. All families have Umus and they're used daily. When it is full the Umu is covered with banana leaves and old mats to keep in the heat. Several hours later the bundles are removed from the Umu and opened to reveal succulent, savory dishes. For special occasions, a very large umu may be used to bake an entire feast. The key to a successful umu is a tight seal which allows the food to be simultaneously steamed, smoked, baked, and bar-b-qued. The traditional serving plate -- a slice from a banana tree trunk-- is as recyclable as the pot that cooked the dishes. And, of course, the fingers can always be used again!

The tiny Pacific island nation of Nauru holds that honor. At only 8.1 sq. miles, with a population of less than 10,000, the country's inhabitants have virtually become giants. Ninety-five percent of the island's adult population is overweight, and 85 percent of the male adult population is obese, according to ABC News. However, island natives haven't always been this fat. According to ABC, it wasn't until they began importing Western food that the population's size exploded. Now half of Nauruans suffer from Type II diabetes.
