We are working to tackle the unhealthy behaviour that leads to a poor diet and excessive weight. This can help reduce the risk of cancer in the UK.
Government should develop a comprehensive alcohol strategy to reduce drinking in the UK to levels where the risks are minimal.
We work closely with the Government to increase awareness of risks, and encourage safer behaviour in the sun for adults and children.
