A Continuous Review of the Evidence

The Continuous Update Project (CUP) is the world's largest resource of existing scientific literature on food, nutrition, physical activity and cancer. The CUP builds on AICR/WCRFs' Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective report.

We systematically collect the research and add it to a central database, then publishes reports on a rolling basis. The estimated timeline of reports:

  • 2014 cancers of the prostate; breast cancer survivors, and the mechanisms of cancer
  • 2015 cancers of the bladder, kidney, liver, gallbladder, stomach
  • 2016 cancers of the esophageal, lung and cervix
  • 2017 updated Recommendations for Cancer Prevention

STRENGTH OF CURRENT EVIDENCE DEFINITION
RISK
CONVINCING
strong, consistent and unlikely to change in the future
PROBABLE
compelling but not quite strong or consistent enough to be "convincing"
LIMITED EVIDENCE-SUGGESTIVE
too limited for a grade of "probable", but a general consistency in the data
LIMITED EVIDENCE-NO CONCLUSION too inconsistent or insufficient for a definitive grade

SUBSTANTIAL EFFECT ON RISK UNLIKELY

Enough evidence to rule out a connectiony
