WCRF UK is the principal UK charity dedicated to the prevention of cancer through the promotion of healthy diet and nutrition, physical activity and weight management. WCRF UK is committed to providing cancer research and education programmes which expand our understanding of the importance of our food and lifestyle choices in the cancer process.

By spreading the good news that cancer can be prevented, WCRF UK hopes that many thousands of lives will be saved. The education and research programmes of WCRF UK are funded almost entirely by donations from the public.

This leaflet gives information based on WCRF UK’s Recommendations for Cancer Prevention developed from the Expert Report: Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective (2007). The Report, produced by WCRF/ AICR, is the largest study of its kind ever published and its Recommendations are based on the most comprehensive review of all the available evidence. WCRF UK is committed to interpreting scientific research in the field of food, nutrition, physical activity and cancer prevention and to translating the results into meaningful and practical advice for the public to follow.
