The WCRF global network funds research on the relationship of nutrition, physical activity and body fatness to cancer risk. The network also focuses on interpreting the accumulated scientific literature in the field, as well as educating people about diet and cancer.
WCRF International manages most of the scientific activities of the WCRF global network. We work with researchers in universities, medical schools and research institutes around the world, aiming to improve our understanding of the causes of cancer and how it can be prevented.
