2007). ” Furthermore, given the failure of cancer registries in the United States to routinely collect socioeconomic data, analyses of the relationship between social class and breast cancer incidence (or mortality) are, at best, speculative (see Krieger and Fee 1994; Krieger et al. 1999; Isaacs and Schroeder 2004; Anglin 2006; Clegg et al. 2009). 6 See ACS (2009, 2014). The negative impact on health has been variously described as the “weathering effect” (Geronimus 2001); “the Sojourner Truth Syndrome” (Mullings and Wali 2000; Mullings 2006); and the state of being “sick and tired of being sick and tired,” as the civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer observed of her community and her own unsuccessful battle with breast cancer (DeMuth 1964).

Studies by Nancy Krieger and colleagues at Kaiser (1994) and David Hunter and colleagues from Harvard (1997: 1253), for example, did not support the hypothesis of a link between “‘environmental estrogens’ such as organochlorines in pesticides and industrial chemicals” and increased breast cancer risk, as had previously been reported by Wolff et al. (1993). Their findings – along with the published responses of a segment of clinicians and researchers who took “reassurance” from them (Key and Reeves 1994: 1520; see also Anderson 1994; MacMahon 1994; Sternberg 1994; Taubes 1994) – were described by witnesses at the San Francisco hearing as evidence of a conservative trend in science (Anglin 1998: 193–196).

Indigenous people and Quilombolas (descendants of slaves who escaped and established communities in rural and forested areas) represent over 25 percent of all people in Brazil enmeshed in such land conflicts. For these people, access to land for immediate for production is critical to the dietary health and well‐being of their families, while forced or “legal” evic­ tion pushes them into overcrowded urban slums where they face a new set of environmental threats to health. In Mato Grosso do Sul, as elsewhere, those who face environmental health injustice resist at both individual and collective levels, and the pattern of social response, what might be called struggles for environmental health, is also of vital importance to the understanding being developed by anthropologists engaged in work at the intersections of health and the environment.
