WCRF International

World Cancer Research Fund International is a not-for-profit organisation that leads and unifies a network of cancer charities with a global reach, dedicated to the prevention of cancer through diet, nutrition and physical activity. The World Cancer Research Fund network charities are based in Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Our mission is to champion the latest and most authoritative scientific research from around the world on cancer prevention and survival through diet, nutrition and physical activity, so that we can help people make informed lifestyle choices to reduce their cancer risk.

Our analysis of the scientific evidence shows that about a third of the most common cancers in high-income countries, and about a quarter in low and middle-income countries, can be prevented by following a healthy diet, avoiding excess weight and being physically active.

We work with researchers, policymakers, health professionals, representatives from civil society and the media to achieve our research goals to:

*Stimulate and support research and innovation in cancer prevention and survivorship. n Analyse global cancer prevention and survival research linked to diet, nutrition and
physical activity.
*Encourage more scientists to enter the field.
*Disseminate our information through relevant channels (conferences, scientific publications, media coverage).
