The Continuous Update Project (CUP) is an ongoing program that analyzes global research on how diet, nutrition and physical activity affect cancer risk and survival.

A major milestone in cancer research, the Third Expert Report analyzes and synthesizes the evidence gathered in CUP reports and serves as a vital resource for anyone interested in preventing cancer.

AICR has pushed research to new heights, and has helped thousands of communities better understand the intersection of lifestyle, nutrition, and cancer.

Recommendation

After a Cancer Diagnosis: Follow Our Recommendations, If You Can

Check with your health professional about what is right for you.

AICR’s Cancer Prevention Recommendations aren’t just useful for people who have never faced a cancer diagnosis — they also can be a blueprint for preventing cancer from reoccurring. If you’re a cancer survivor (either newly diagnosed or post treatment), adopting these cancer recommendations can improve the quality of your everyday life, and may help prevent a cancer recurrence.

Rely on your support network.

Figuring out life after a cancer diagnosis can be hard, to say the least. We recommend you rely on your support network where possible — and of course, AICR is always here for you.

We offer cancer patients and survivors access to numerous tools and educational resources to move forward. You can start here:

Following AICR’s Cancer Prevention Recommendations may help reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.

Along with eating a mostly plant-based diet and maintaining a healthy weight, growing evidence shows that regular physical activity may help prevent cancer recurrence and improve the quality of life for many survivors.  Our recommendations can also protect you against other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis – diseases that many cancer survivors are more vulnerable to developing than people who have not been diagnosed with cancer.

Follow AICR recommendations to survive and thrive after cancer.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or are navigating life post-cancer, it’s always good to consult with your healthcare professional when making health and lifestyle decisions. Your healthcare provider can ensure that the steps you take in treating cancer and preventing cancer recurrence are right for your unique health history, and they can help you make tailored decisions regarding your individual eating and physical activity concerns.
