WCRF HK is a registered charity dedicated to the prevention of cancer by means of healthy food and nutrition, physical activity and weight management. In 1997, we published our first expert report Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a global perspective, which has inspired a surge in research on food, nutrition, physical activity and cancer risk. As a result, we set ourselves a bold objective: to systematically review and assess the body of scientific literature in this area.

In a process that has taken five years, an expert panel of 21 renowned scientists from around the world has reviewed and assessed the body of research on the relationship between food, nutrition (including obesity), physical activity and cancer risk. The expert panel has drawn conclusions based on this evidence and developed 10 health recommendations fro the prevention of cancer. WCRF HK has invited three panel members and observers of the second expert report to reveal findings of this report at the launch conference. They will also discuss the recommendations as well as human and mechanistic evidence behind them.
