This book, written by two experienced clinicians who have both extensively researched and published on aspects of the causation of gastroenterological disease themselves, aims to present a critical, yet up-to-date account of the causation of the common and not so common diseases of the digestive system, both acute and chronic. In addition, they have both trained in clinical epidemiology. Introductory chapters on clinical epidemiology and some epidemiological principles have been provided for those of the readers less conversant with the epidemiological and statistical principles involved. Whilst the text is principally aimed at clinicians, both trained and in training, the authors envisage a role for public health workers and, in an era of growing interplay between medicine and litigation lawyers, a role for those approaching the subject from a forensic viewpoint.
