The Real-World Impact of AICR
Today, the connection between lifestyle and cancer risk is an accepted medical fact. For over 30 years, AICR’s robust grant program, research conferences, expert reports and updates have changed the way the world thinks about cancer.
AICR estimates that 340,000 cases of cancer in the U.S. could be prevented every year simply by:
- Eating healthier
- Moving more
- Being a healthy weight
And today, independent researchers unaffiliated with AICR are confirming our findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals like The Journal of Clinical Oncology, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Cancer Causes & Control and many more.
Again and again, these scientists are finding that people who follow AICR’s evidence-based Recommendations for Cancer Prevention get fewer cancers and live longer.
Meanwhile, studies with cancer survivors show that those who follow AICR’s Recommendations improve their physical and mental health – and live longer.
With your help, AICR can continue funding cutting edge cancer research and helping educate Americans on how they can reduce their cancer risk.
