World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF UK) funds research into the associations between nutrition, physical activity and body fatness and cancer prevention and survival. We also focus on interpreting the accumulated scientific literature in the field. We work with researchers in universities and research institutes around the world, aiming to improve our understanding of the causes of cancer and how it can be prevented. WCRF UK is a member of the WCRF global network of cancer prevention charities, led by WCRF International. Over the past 30 years, the WCRF Global Network has invested over £103 million in research worldwide. and
