Nutrition and Physical Activity Guidelines for Cancer Prevention

For the great majority of Americans who do not use tobacco, weight control, dietary choices, and levels of physical activity are the most important modifiable determinants of cancer risk. The American Cancer Society guidelines reflect the most current scientific evidence related to dietary and activity patterns and cancer risk. They focus on recommendations for individual choices but also present recommendations for community action to create a supportive social and physical environment in which individuals have genuine opportunities to choose healthy behaviors.
