First Expert ReportExpert Report Cover 

In 1997 WCRF/AICR released Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a global perspective, a landmark report that quickly became the standard basis for policy, research and education around the world.

Interpreting relevant scientific data is the most critical step in the development of healthy living guidelines for the general public. Two affiliates of the World Cancer Research Fund global network, WCRF-UK and AICR, did just that by facilitating an exhaustive review and analysis of the available scientific evidence on food, nutrition and cancer.

The report reviewed thousands of published research studies from around the world, leading to specific recommendations for policy makers and the general public to reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Over 30,000 copies were produced and distributed.

Since then, thousands more studies have been published and advances in technology have improved the way information is collected and analyzed. As a result, WCRF/AICR has produced a Second Expert Report, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective.
