Published on

The 20th International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) hosted by the International Union of Nutritional Science (IUNS) took place on the 15th-20th September 2013, Granada, Spain. WCRF International held a 2-hour symposium on the Continuous Update Project (CUP) entitled ‘Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer – Keeping the Evidence Current: WCRF/AICR Continuous Update Project (CUP).’ It included four presentations exploring the latest updates from the CUP.

  • Just a note about who does what within our organisation. The charitable fundraising and information programs are conducted at a national level in four countries. And then there is the part I work for – WCRF International – which provides strategic guidance to the charities and conducts most of the science and policy work.
  • November 1st will see the publication of the WCRF/AICR Expert Report, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer: A Global Perspective. The report synthesizes evidence from a vast body of research, grades the quality of that evidence, and draws a series of comprehensive cancer prevention goals for populations and practical recommendations for people. It is a remarkable achievement and yet, as you will see, it is only the beginning.
  • For breast cancer the number of papers published in the last 6 years is about the same number as published in the previous 50 years. The CUP numbers include all those entered by end 2011

    12. 12. Continuous Update Project (CUP) • Keep evidence, conclusions and recommendations updated into the future • Working with team at ICL • Same principles: - Systematically review evidence - Meta analysis - Panel of experts -draw conclusions -make recommendations
    13. 13. Novel aspects of CUP 1. Breast Cancer Survivors 2. Mechanisms
    14. 14. Cancer prevention What to do…? What determines people’s behaviour? How to change it?
    15. 15. Behaviour • People behave like those around them – social norms • Asking people to behave very differently from their social norm only has limited or unsustained effect • Personal choice determines individual variation around the social norm – small effect • External factors determine social norms – big effect
    16. 16. Everybody has a role to play Action needs to be coherent Leadership from Government Health professionals
    17. 17. Conclusions The WCRF/AICR Expert Reports, and the CUP, are the most rigorous and authoritative reviews available. They conclude that • Cancer is a major cause of death, disability and lost life years • Cancer is mostly environmentally determined and largely preventable • With smoking, food, nutrition, body fatness and physical activity are the most important factors affecting cancer risk • Evidence to support this comes from many different sources • Preventing cancer through food, nutrition and physical activity will also prevent other major chronic diseases • Changes are needed in people’s environment as well as in personal choices
