In 1982, American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) was founded to advance the simple but then-radical idea that cancer could be prevented.
AICR focused on the link between diet and cancer and immediately began supporting cutting-edge research in this area and educating the public about the results.
Today, they continue to fund research in the field of nutrition, physical activity and cancer prevention, treatment and survival.
They interpret the results of that research, along with findings from the global scientific community, to craft reliable, evidence-based recommendations for lower cancer risk.
