Updated American Cancer Society nutrition guidelines stress need for supportive environment
Date:1/11/2012

ATLANTA January 11, 2012 Updated guidelines on nutrition and physical activity for cancer prevention from the American Cancer Society stress the importance of creating social and physical environments that support healthy behaviors. The report includes updated recommendations for individual choices regarding diet and physical activity patterns, but emphasizes that those choices occur within a community context that can either help or hinder healthy behaviors.

The updated guidelines include recommendations for community action to accompany the four major recommendations for individual choices to reduce cancer risk, saying a supportive social and physical environment is indispensable if all Americans are to have genuine opportunities to choose and maintain healthy behaviors.

The American Cancer Society publishes its Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention to serve as a foundation for its communication, policy, and community strategies and, ultimately, to affect dietary and physical activity patterns among Americans. The guidelines, published about every five years, are developed by a national panel of experts in cancer research, prevention, epidemiology, public health, and policy, and reflect the most current scientific evidence related to dietary and activity patterns and cancer risk. They were last updated in 2006.

The guidelines include four major recommendations, each of which includes several supporting recommendations.

Achieve and maintain a healthy weight throughout life

  • Be as lean as possible throughout life without being underweight.

  • Avoid excess weight gain at all ages. For those who are currently overweight or obese, losing even a small amount of weight has health benefits and is a good place to start.

  • Engage in regular physical activity and limit consumption of high-calorie foods and beverages as key strategies for maintaining a healthy weight.<
