The AICR Lifestyle & Cancer Symposium addresses the most current and consequential issues regarding diet, obesity, physical activity and cancer.

The Annual AICR Research Conference is the most authoritative source for information on diet, obesity, physical activity and cancer.

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.

Why Shred for Cancer?

“When one of our franchisees was stricken with an inoperable brain tumor and we saw the amazing fight he had to beat this disease (he continues to fight to this day), we knew that we had to find an organization just as committed as David was to fighting this disease. For us at proshred we wanted an organization that had the same beliefs we had – education, prevention, and knowledge are the best ways to stop this disease, and AICR lives this every day, their research is aimed at education and prevention. We at PROSHRED® know that we can help make a difference, and will do everything we can to help do that.”

The suggested donation is $5 per box, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to AICR’s research and education programs. Individuals will receive goodie bags with cancer prevention recipes and other materials.
