Epidemiology and Its Relation to Causation

, The Legal Intelligencer


Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. The recognized goal of epidemiology is to limit disease, injury and death in a community by intervening to prevent or limit outbreaks or epidemics of disease or injury. Two of the most famous legal cases involving epidemiology can be found in the movies "A Civil Action" and "Erin Brockovich."
