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.

In just a few minutes, you can put together a super-simple, impactful fundraiser that supports AICR research, and connects us to new communities. Facebook does all the detailed work—all you have to do is create a personalized page, set some goals, and start fundraising!
