This concluding chapter argues that cardiovascular risk and disease are a critical site at which racial, class, and gender stratification, technical and structural conditions of scientific knowledge production, and biographical experiences of inequality and intersectionality, converge to create a science–lay divide over the causes of disease as well as the possibilities for remedying health inequalities. This site provides a window into the consequentiality of institutional and everyday biopolitics of knowledge and its links/association with the nature of relations and mechanisms of power in the contemporary world. As such, this text is an attempt to provide the basis for an intervention into the production of “official” science on cardiovascular health.
