Epidemiology therefore plays a role primarily in general causation, to show that a connection with health is not only possible but likely both in general and for the individual case that matches characteristics of the population. Epidemiological investigations to determine potential causes and the size of risk can take several years to complete and there is no perfect study, ever. The trick is to do studies that compensate for the inevitable flaws and minimize error. It is generally desirable to make decisions about risk based on the results from several studies.

If a similar association between a similar exposure and similar health event has been observed previously and proved to be causal, then by analogy, a cause and effect relationship is of greater likelihood, but this is considered a weaker criterion that is always trumped by direct evidence. Associations between an exposure and event can be causal or non-causal, and in general, the more Hill criteria satisfied, the more support for a causal association. However, it is critical always to consider the possibility of chance, versus causal associations, thus determining epidemiological causation is rather challenging [1, 3].
