Continuous Update Project

Visit our Diet and Cancer Report website which is the central resource for our Continuous Update Project, Second Expert Report and Policy Report.

Our latest CUP report on ovarian cancer was published in March 2014. Reports on breast, colorectal, pancreatic, and endometrial cancers were published in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively.

In September 2013 WCRF International hosted a CUP symposium at the 20th International Congress on Obesity. The presentations are now available.

You can find out 'What's new' with the CUP on our Diet and Cancer Report website.

Overview

The WCRF network has a long-term commitment to the Continuous Update Project, which benefits research institutions around the globe.

The aim is to update all 17 cancer sites and cancer survivors reviewed in the original 2007 Report on a rolling basis by 2015. The Expert Panel will then start the process of deciding whether changes should be made to the WCRF network’s Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.

Information as to whether the Second Expert Report Recommendations are confirmed or require changes will be communicated through the WCRF network education and communications programmes in 2017.

The CUP database, as it develops, is currently available to researchers on request, but will be available for general access after 2017.
