For more than 30 years, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) has been at the forefront of funding research and educating Americans about the link between lifestyle and cancer risk. We have made great progress thanks to the tremendous support from the scientific and health professional communities, as well as the general public who are invested in our research. However, our work is never finished, as awareness of the link between lifestyle and cancer risk is still too low among Americans.
