    Cancer will affects one in two 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.
