Abstract:

This chapter provides an introduction to epidemiology and epidemiologic methods as they are applied to problems of foodborne diseases. An understanding of epidemiology is important, because despite all of our best efforts to prevent foodborne diseases, humans remain the ultimate bioassay for low-level or sporadic contamination of our food supply. Epidemiologic methods of foodborne disease surveillance are needed to detect outbreaks, identify their causes, and assess the effectiveness of control measures. Epidemiologic data are also important in establishing food safety priorities, allocating food safety resources, stimulating public interest in food safety issues, establishing risk reduction strategies and public education campaigns, and evaluating the effectiveness of food safety programs. The concepts and methods of epidemiology can be used to examine the relationships between disease and all levels of food safety, from production and distribution to preparation and consumption. Models such as PulseNet provide opportunities to conduct multinational surveillance for at least the major bacterial foodborne disease agents. As foodborne disease problems imported into one country may represent disease problems endemic to the food-producing country, growing awareness of these problems could stimulate investment in interventions that improve the health of both countries.
