About American Institute for Cancer Research

AICR’s research is changing lives…and saving lives.

Our Ten Recommendations for Cancer Prevention, derived from AICR/WCRF’s rigorous, comprehensive reports and updates, outline steps to lower cancer risk. They provide practical guidance to individuals and shape health policy.

Since we released these evidence-based recommendations, researchers have been putting them to the test. They’re looking at ongoing studies of diet, physical activity and disease risk among large numbers of people and analyzing them based on how closely those people follow AICR’s Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.

Now these researchers are publishing their results. Over and over again, they’re showing that following AICR’s recommendations cuts cancer risk, improves health of cancer survivors, and protects against other chronic diseases as well.
