Cancer Update from John Hopkins

1-Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4.. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells..
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

I was going to delete this thread because it is a HOAX and not actually from the real Johns Hopkins Medical Center. It may be from some dude named John Hopkins, but I doubt that too. Instead, I decided to use it as an example of how misinformation is spread around the globe. This lengthy diatribe was sent via e-mail. As you see, there is no link to Johns Hopkins (or even John Hopkins) as a reference either.

To quote the real Johns Hopkins Medical Center:

"Johns Hopkins Health Alerts Cancer Home Page provides links to the articles at this site on the wide variety of cancers we cover, from prostate cancer, colon cancer, to breast cancer and skin cancer. Please click on the links below to learn more.

Please also note: The so-called "Cancer Update" email currently circulating on the internet from "John Hopkins" is a complete hoax. The medical institutions are JOHNS Hopkins. Please spread the word that the email is a dangerous hoax in the same way it has been passed around as 'news'.

I received this thru my email.
I read thru and found that most of the items were true.
So it is up to you to use it or destroy it.
My intention was good, as I care about people in the world.
So, be it.

Actually kombizz, there are so few true words in this diatribe, it's not even funny. Whoever wrote this has absolutely no idea what they're talking seems that they have no concept of science at all. Though the basics are sound (eat fresh fruits and vegetables), the purported science and medicine behind it is bogus. Don't eat sugar? Really? How does one do that? Starch is made of sugar, so do we avoid starch too? Sugar is what every cell in our bodies feed upon in order to grow and reproduce. Should we avoid iron too? Every red blood cell has an iron atom at its nucleus, so that's out.

This is the most dangerous kind of ignorance - one that purports to be fact based and backed by a prestigious research institution, when in fact it is not. Apparently honesty is not one of the authors better traits.

I do agree with one statement though: "Learn to relax and enjoy life."

Please one and all, when you see this kind of email come through, just delete it. Ignorance like this only has a life as long as people keep it alive. This is no different from any other spam.
