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.
In September 2013, a CUP symposium was hosted by WCRF International at the 20th International Congress on Obesity, covering various aspects of the CUP including new work on cancer survivors and reviewing mechanistic evidence. You can now view and download the presentations from the conferences section of this website.
Our CUP report on endometrial cancer was published in September 2013. Reports on breast, colorectal, and pancreatic cancers were published in 2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively. A new report on updated evidence for ovarian cancer will be published in February 2014.
You can find out 'What's new' with the CUP on our Diet and Cancer Report website.
The WCRF global 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 global 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 global 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.
Read the key findings from the four CUP reports on breast, colorectal, pancreatic and endometrial cancers.
Find out which cancers are being updated and get information on other key activities.
In 2007 the WCRF global network published the most comprehensive report on the relationship of food, nutrition, physical activity, and body weight to cancer risk.
These recommendations are based on the findings of the WCRF/AICR Second Expert Report and latest findings from the CUP.
