Since it started in 1982, the World Cancer Research Fund network has been a pioneer in research and health information on the link between food, nutrition, physical activity and the prevention of cancer.

We were the first cancer charity to:

  • Create awareness of the link between diet and cancer.
  • Fund research into diet and cancer prevention.
  • Collate and analyse all the global research on the links between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer, and translate the findings into practical, scientifically-proven recommendations on cancer prevention for use by health professionals, individuals and governments worldwide.
