What causes disease?
For any "disease" or condition, you could start by considering interactions among environmental and social factors.
» Poor diet, resulting from food choices, "causes" nutritional deficiency or obesity in a population
» Is it "caused" by historical distribution of land use, including (in developing countries) during colonial times?
» Or by the regulatory environment, including crop subsidies, food inspections, etc.?
» What about the role of NGOs, IGOs, aid networks?
» What about infrastructure, such as food distribution networks, transportation, etc.?
» Is the status of women/girls a factor?
» What is the role of commercial activity?
» What about the healthcare and health insurance system?
Let's talk about indexing!
» Do you want articles on labor or articles on labor? Or is it labour?
» Do you want articles on HIV (a virus) or articles on HIV diseases (such as AIDS)?
» Is epidemiology a concept relating to the causes and distribution of diseases, or is it what epidemiologist do?
» What's the difference between diet, food, food supply, food habits, food chain, nutritional status, eating, energy intake, ...?
» Is lead a noun or a verb?
We offer two ways to access UCB licensed library resources from off-campus:
When accessing a library licensed resource via links found on OskiCat, Start your Search, or our Databases A-Z list, you will be prompted to authenticate via CalNet or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number. If you normally search via non-licensed UCB resources (such as Google Scholar), you may need to install our bookmarklet in order to authenticate.
Note: EZProxy will replace the library's previous proxy solution. More information on EZProxy can be found on our EZProxy guide.
