A “WAR on Coke” should be part of a global push to fight cancer, according to a report from the peak international anti-cancer body.

Cutting the consumption of sugary drinks by half is a key recommendation of the World Cancer Research Fund report.

It says almost a third of cancer cases are preventable and are caused by sedentary habits and an unhealthy diet.

It recommends that people drink less alcohol and eat less meat and more vegetables.

It also comes out against dietary supplements, despite their anti-cancer claims, because not enough is known about their effectiveness or side effects.

The report was welcomed by Craig Sinclair, director of the Cancer Council Victoria’s Cancer Prevention Centre.

He said it was the most authoritative advice yet on how to cut cancer rates.

Mr Sinclair estimated that up to 5200 cases of cancer a year in Victoria could be prevented by simple improvements to lifestyle and diet. Copyright the author or news agency.
