About this book

This book presents research findings from epidemiological studies investigating chronic and intractable diseases with unidentifiable causes from a clinical perspective. Each chapter provides the latest findings on specific diseases, including procedures for their study, insights into their causes, risk factors and preventive factors providing a foundation for new ideas and further development as well as establishing treatment procedures. Epidemiological Studies of Specified Rare and Intractable Disease(Nanbyo in Japanese)  is a valuable resource for both new and established researchers as well as students who are seeking information on public health and on environmental and clinical epidemiology.

Reviews

“A book like this would not have been possible 30 years ago. This is due primarily to two factors: [1] contributions from numerous studies over the last 30 years that have documented the significance of flood basalt volcanism in the geological record, including their links to mass extinction events, economically significant mineralization and groundwater resources, and CO2 sequestration. [2] Digital cameras that make taking (and storing) high-quality photographs by amateur photographers possible. As a result, documenting landscapes and specific physical features of geological phenomena has never been easier. These two overarching factors, coupled with researchers who have applied modern physical geological/volcanological techniques to the study of flood basalt volcanism, have set the stage for Hetu Sheth’s book A Photographic Atlas of Flood Basalt Volcanism. Sheth is a flood basalt expert, who is well-known for his work on the Deccan Traps (India) and other flood basalt/large igneous provinces (e.g., Ontong-Java, South Caucasus, etc.) across the world. This experience is tied to high-quality image and photo captions contributed to by 89 international collaborators (mostly geologists who also work on flood basalts), yielding an impressive archive of the diverse and spectacular geological features associated with flood basalt provinces. Thus, the book is an outstanding reference for anyone interested in better understanding flood basalt volcanism on Earth.” (Matthew E. Brueseke, Frontiers in Earth Science, Vol. 6 (115), September, 2018)
