EPIDEMIOLOGY

This week you were introduced to three complex theories that are used to advocate for a cause and effect relationship between exposures and diseases. These three models of cause and effect are:
· Hill's Criteria for Causation
· Rothman's Pie Model
· Web of Causation
Each of these models can be worked for a specific exposure and disease relationship to make an argument for a causal relationship. In this week's discussion, you are going to select a specific cause and effect model and apply it to a disease of your choice. Please note that you will have to be specific. Remember, epidemiology is a quantitative discipline. If you are going to talk about strengths of association you are going to have to discuss the results sections of the articles that you are reading.
Hill's Criteria Guidance
If you are going to select Hill’s Criteria you will have to write a brief paragraph justifying a specific exposure and disease relationship. You will need to use journals, meta-analyses, and web sources to answer each criterion. If you have an issue understand the criteria or how to answer it precisely, please reach out to your instructor immediately. Hill's criteria will work on any disease.
Rothman's Pie Model Guidance
Instead of selecting a single cause and looking at the role it plays in disease causation, you will be looking at the interplay between many different cases and using the terminology gone over in lecture to apply it to the disease you selected. Also, think of the PAR statistic. How could that be used to explain the slice of the pie that any one given risk factor explains the largest proportion of the etiology of the disease. This model works best for chronic diseases either communicable or non-communicable.
Web of Causation Guidance
You will need to include a picture of the web for your specific disease, and then explain the web and how each of the factors interrelate. Also, think of the strings in the web. Some studies will show you the statistics of association of each string in the web. You will definitely want to work in statistics into this post, as with the other selections. You will need journals and websites to assist you here.
This post should be 500 words or more in APA format with proper in-work citations. (All journals, articles, and references should be no later than 2010)

Introduction
    A disease is a condition of human which is created due to a cause and the effect is termed as disease. This can occur due to some external sources of contingency which may be communicable or non-communicable. The disease like diabetes is in increasing trend nowadays due to exposure to an unhealthy lifestyle. The Hill’s Criteria of Causation can be used to specify the cause-and-effect relationship of diabetes and its exposure.
Hill’s Criteria of Causation and Diabetes
    In this assignment we will discuss about the disease diabetes with respect to the cause-effect relationship applying the Hill’s criteria of causation. It depicts the strength to the cause. This criterion mentions that more strength of the exposure causes the relationship towards the disease more casual (strength). It gives a logical pathway to the exposure to outcome (Plausibility). The data remains same at different places of exposure, it can or cannot maintain the dose-response result (Consistency), the exposure may precede the outcome(temporality) and the casual factors of exposure often...
