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.

AICR Programs and Resources

Healthy10 Challenge
A 10-week, free, interactive, online program to help users improve their diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight for lower cancer risk and better overall health. It is based on AICR’s evidence-based Cancer Prevention Recommendations and is intended for adults wanting to reduce their cancer risk (including reoccurrence and secondary cancer). Its motivational challenges alternate between diet and physical activity to help users eat smarter and move more. Each week users will be given a goal as well as tips and tools to help conquer each challenge. This is a simple and fun way to become healthier and take action to reduce cancer risk at any stage of life.

New American Plate
AICR’s New American Plate is a plant-based diet created to reflect research on reducing cancer risk. It emphasizes choosing foods with plenty of fiber, nutrients and plant compounds that may help protect against cancer; limits foods that increase the risk of cancer; and helps reach and maintain a healthy weight, which research shows can play a major role in reducing cancer risk. The New American Plate can be personalized to meet individual preferences while making healthy choices for the proportion of different foods on your plate and for the portions you eat. The goal is to have vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans make up 2/3 (or more) of each meal, and animal protein to make up 1/3 (or less).

Coping with Cancer in the Kitchen
Designed for cancer survivors, “CCK” is a unique, evidence-based, interactive, eight-week program with the option of virtual or in-person delivery. It is based on AICR’s evidence-based Cancer Prevention Recommendations and packaged as a turnkey program specifically for communities. Following a series of successful pilots and the results from a randomized controlled trial published in 2020, CCK will begin to invite applications from more communities to participate in late 2021 or early 2022.
