"Mendelian randomization and related techniques allow researchers to use knowledge about genetic factors that contribute to a disease to predict whether other risk factors, such as environmental exposure, play a part. This volume examines how these approaches allow researchers to make causal inferences about modifiable exposures and how this can benefit public health"--
