Continuous Update Project (CUP)

The WCRF/AICR Continuous Update Project (CUP) is an ongoing review of cancer prevention research that provides up-to-date evidence on how people can reduce their cancer risk through diet and physical activity.

Building on WCRF/AICR’s 2007 Second Expert Report, the CUP database is thought to be the biggest database of evidence in the world on how food, nutrition, physical activity and body fatness affect cancer risk.
