It’s estimated that one in two of us in the UK will develop cancer in our lifetimes. Yet around 40% of cancer cases could be prevented. That’s 144,000 cases each year in the UK alone.
For over 25 years World Cancer Research Fund has been a pioneer in scientific research on the link between food, nutrition, physical activity and preventing and surviving cancer. Translating the findings into practical, easy-to-use information to help everyone reduce the risk of cancer for themselves and their families.
World Cancer Research Fund founder Marilyn Gentry is passionate about preventing cancer: “Almost all of us are affected one way or another by cancer, yet we are not powerless. Around 40% of cancer cases could be prevented through simple, healthy lifestyle choices and we hope that by spreading this good news, along with our cancer prevention information, many thousands of lives will be saved. But there is so much more we need to do if we want to live in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer
A gift left to us in your Will would ensure we can continue our research into cancer prevention and survival, so that we can help even more people live happier, healthier, cancer-free lives in the years to come.”
