The EPIC-Oxford Study

Welcome to EPIC-Oxford. The Oxford component of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) is a prospective cohort of 65,000 men and women living in the UK, many of whom are vegetarian.

The main objective of the study is to examine how diet influences the risk of cancer, particularly for the most common types of cancer in Britain, as well as other chronic diseases. The study began in 1993 and since then a great deal of important research has been published from EPIC-Oxford and its collaboration with other EPIC centres in Europe.

The EPIC study becomes even more valuable for understanding the long-term effects of diet on health as time goes on and your continued support and participation in this important study is vital for its continuing success.
