40 Years of Progress: Transforming Cancer. Saving Lives.

American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) has been instrumental in driving the major progress in our understanding of how diet, nutrition and physical activity impact cancer risk and cancer survivorship. Research on dietary patterns, the human microbiome and using exercise to fight cancer, have helped transform cancer prevention since 1982, when AICR was founded. For our 40th year anniversary, AICR is highlighting four decades of relentless progress and our transformative contributions to cancer prevention and survivorship.

AICR has harnessed the progress in cancer research to develop AICR’s 10 Cancer Prevention Recommendations, the evidence-based action plan to lower your risk of cancer. Approximately 4 of every 10 US cancer cases can be prevented with health-related changes including diet, weight and physical activity.

In 1983, AICR funded a pioneering research by Dr. Nicholas Day. Day used health records in Iceland, some dating back to 1910, to study changes in body weight, body fat and other physical and biochemical characteristics. This was one of the studies that ultimately paved the way for discovering obesity as a significant risk factor for developing breast and at least 11 other types of cancer.

Really informative read Karen! Agree with you, grilled chicken can be a great option. It is low in fat, but high in protein, phosphorus, vitamin B6, niacin and selenium.
