Intestinal epidemiology deals with the proper intestines, intestinal diseases, intestinal disorders, and various health issues people face. Understanding these disease conditions in a population can make it possible to invent remedies and prevention strategies.
In human anatomy, the intestine is the segment of the alimentary canal extending from the mouth via stomach to the anus. In humans and other mammals, consists of two segments, the small intestine and the large intestine. In humans, the small intestine is further subdivided into the duodenum, jejunum and ileum while the large intestine is subdivided into the caecum and colon.
Intestinal epidemiolgy studies help to analyse and understand intestinal diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract, namely the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum, and the accessory organs of digestions, the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
