Who are the WCRF UK?
World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF UK) is the only major UK registered charity dedicated to the prevention of cancer through healthy diets and associated lifestyles. WCRF UK is committed to providing cancer research and education programmes which expand our understanding of the importance of our food and lifestyle choices in the cancer process. By spreading the good news that cancer is largely preventable, WCRF UK hopes that many thousands of lives will be saved. WCRF UK's education and research programmes are funded by donations from the public.
WCRF UKs diet and health guidelines
In 1997, the WCRF global network published a report Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a global perspective, which examined over 4,500 studies into the link between diet, lifestyle and cancer. As a result WCRF UK was able to devise the guidelines (above) which translate the report's findings into meaningful, practical advice for the public.
