Epidemiology, in sharp contrast, is a generalized science concerned not with individual events but with the constellations created by their interrelationships. Epidemiology thus looks at medicine through the telescope, rather than through the microscope. For example, the virologist might identify a new agent that incites pathologic changes similar to rheumatoid arthritis in the joints of an experimental animal and may suggest that human rheumatoid arthritis may be a virus disease. The epidemiologist might agree, but will demand that the virologist describe a pattern of spread of virus which would not be inconsistent with the epidemiologic observation that the attack rate of rheumatoid arthritis in marital consorts of known cases is the same as that in the general population.

In comparison with the number of new substances, the serious effects have been relatively few. But it is obviously only a question of time, as we continue to produce new compounds at an increasing rate, and if we neglect to screen them for health hazards, before a substance appears that is so lethal that it may threaten all life within its range of contact. There is also the fundamental question as to whether the rate of exposure to new toxic agents may become so great as to overwhelm the relatively slow compensatory effects of evolution.
