Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins


This email began appearing around 2007 as a preface to another email making circulating at the time about the dangers of microwaving plastic. It gives a long list of various nutritional methods to combat cancer attributed to Johns Hopkins University, implying that these methods are more effective than traditional approaches of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
