A Continuous Review of the EvidenceThe 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 publish 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
1 in 3 cancers — about 374,000 cases — can be prevented by being active, eating healthy and maintaining a healthy weight.
