  1. Does risk factor epidemiology put epidemiology at risk ? Peering into the future.

    Article - En anglais

    The multiple cause black box paradigm of the current risk factor era in epidemiology is growing less serviceable.

    This single level paradigm is likely to be displaced.

    The signs are that the growing strength of molecular epidemiology on the one side, and of a global epidemiology based on information systems on the other, will come to dominate epidemiology and segregate it into separate disciplines.

    At the same time, the links with public health interests grow weaker.

    A multilevel ecoepidemiology has the potential to bind these strands together.
