World Cancer Research Fund

"Since 1990, World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF UK) has been supporting research into the role of diet and nutrition in the prevention of cancer. It also offers a wide range of cancer prevention education programmes and publications for health professionals, schools and the public. Through these pioneering efforts, WCRF UK has helped focus attention on the link between cancer and the choices we make about food, drink, physical activity and bodyweight." [1]
