Finally, I draw upon my own ethnographic work in northern California (1992–) on breast cancer, activism, and racial/ethnic inequalities, in conjunction with writings and testimony by and about women living with cancer. As Rachel Carson argued more than 50 years ago, the pivotal issue is whether and how such knowledge might be employed to reconfigure environmental and related policies for the United States, as well as elsewhere in the global North: The choice, after all, is ours to make. If, having endured much, we have at last asserted our “right to know,” and if, knowing, we have concluded that we are being asked to take senseless and frightening risks, then we should no longer accept the counsel of those who tell us that we must fill our world with poisonous chemicals; we should look about and see what other course is open to us.

Importantly, the environments that impact human health today, and increasingly in the future, are and will be significantly and adversely shaped by human activity. Environmental health, and our role in creating it, is central to contemporary human health, and hence to the ongoing forging of an anthropology of health and illness.
