About This Episode

In 1985 a paper titled “Sick Individuals and Sick Populations” was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

The paper, authored by eminent epidemiologist Geoffrey Rose, can be considered as seminal and important because it brilliantly raised the concept of the “prevention paradox” and challenged traditional approaches to public health and preventive medicine.

The paper’s insights have had a lasting impact on how we understand and approach population health interventions. And it raised many contentious public health issues, which are still debated and relevant today.

The ideas have very important implications for how we can tackle diet-related diseases in meaningful ways.

In this episode, Danny and Alan discuss the central themes of the paper, why they are so crucial to understand, and what this means for our understanding of diet and chronic disease prevention.
