Epidemiological practices in research on small effects by Hans Hoffmeister( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In modern societies, epidemiology is increasingly confronted with the detection and evaluation of small risks, especially from environmental exposures and various lifestyles. The question arises, if for example, the risks from residential magnetic field exposure and childhood leukaemia, or dietry fat intake and breast cancer are real, or if they can safely be considered as artefacts, as a consequence of methodological limits of epidemiology? More and more conflicting results are produced and are putting the general public in a state of uncertainty, which, if public pressure is strong enough, might result in political action without the required sound scientific justification. Therefore, strategies have to be developed, to minimise the "noise" in epidemiological studies, in order to get a clearer picture of the real influencing factors, and to reduce the chance of false results. Based on an international conference on this topic, attended by some of the world's leading epidemiologists, this book is presenting an overview of the main difficulties researchers might encounter when studying small risks. It is also offering recommendations on how to proceed when small risks are under study in order to avoid spurious results

Die große Mehrheit der Deutschen konsumiert lebenslang alkoholische Getränke und bleibt dabei maßvoll. Das belegen Auswertungen der Nationalen Gesundheits-Surveys. Diese erste Untersuchung an einer großen und repräsentativen Bevölkerungsstichprobe zeigt auch klar, daß maßvoller Umgang mit Alkohol gesundheitliche Vorteile mit sich bringt. Im Vergleich mit Abstinenten, aber auch mit starken Trinkern, fühlen sich die vielen Menschen, die Bier, Wein und andere Alkoholika in geringen oder moderaten Mengen genießen, gesünder, schneiden bei wichtigen Risikofaktoren für Herz und Kreislauf besser ab und haben ein erheblich kleineres Sterberisiko
