  1. Timeless epidemiology or history cannot be ignored.

    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiology has produced some useful effect measures, the etiologic fraction and the potential impact fraction, with which the effects of changes in risk factor prevalence on disease specific incidence can be estimated.

    However to be able to use them for decisions in health policy, adjustments need to be made, in order to incorporate elements that can be avoided in carefully designed epidemiologic studies but cannot be ignored if the results are applied to the « real world ».
