World Cancer Research Fund UK
Our vision is to live in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer
Our mission is to champion the latest and most authoritative scientific research from around the world on cancer prevention and survival through diet, weight and physical activity, so that we can help people make informed lifestyle choices to reduce their cancer risk.
Cancer currently affects one in three people in the UK but about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented through eating a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. That’s around 81,000 cancer-free lives.
The cornerstone of our research programme is our Continuous Update Project, which informs our work. It’s the world’s largest source of scientific research on cancer prevention and survival through diet, weight and physical activity.
We translate this science into accurate, accessible, understandable information so that you can have the best available cancer prevention advice at your fingertips in our Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.
