Policy and Action for Cancer Prevention – A US Perspective

About one-third of the most common cancers in the US – over 349,000 cases every year – could be prevented if we all enjoyed a healthy diet, were physically active on a daily basis and maintained a healthy weight.

This US Policy Report Executive Summary of the 2009 AICR/WCRF Policy for Cancer Prevention report outlines rational and effective public policies and programs in which all nine different actor groups – from the federal government to health and other professionals organizations to citizens – can play essential parts. It identifies policies and actions especially likely to be relevant from a US perspective.

Supported by the American Public Health Association, the US Policy Report Executive Summary points to the need for collective action.
