Cancer research findings
The research we fund and the analysis of thousands of scientific studies inform our Cancer Prevention Recommendations, a proven blueprint for beating cancer.
Our Third Expert Report, Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer: a Global Perspective presents the research on lifestyle and the risk of cancer.
