As part of the Continuous Update Project (CUP) – the World Cancer Research Fund International and American Institute for Cancer Research's ongoing programme to analyse global research on how diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight affect cancer risk and survival.   
For the report, the global scientific research on diet, nutrition, physical activity and breast cancer was gathered and analysed by a research team at Imperial College London, and then independently assessed by a panel of leading international scientists. 
The report reviewed evidence from 119 studies from around the world. The studies examined more than 12 million women and over 260,000 cases of breast cancer.
