Johns Hopkins Hospital Baltimore USA

Postby pennycsf » Mon Sep 09, 2013 1:12 pm

I have received, yet again :evil: , an alleged update from Johns Hopkins which claims that this well respected cancer treatment hospital is now looking at alternatives to chemo and radiotherapy. In particular, it is advocating diets which stop "feeding" cancer cells, thus one should avoid sugar, milk, salt, meat etc. and start drinking green tea.

Johns Hopkins has denied involvement with this particular scam and others sent out in its name (plastic in the microwave causing cancer being one) and, needless to say, when you look at its website it supports traditional treatment with a balanced diet.

If you would like to look at the report on this hoax, here is a link to "snopes", a website which looks into internet spread misinformation.

PLEASE be careful when you receive similar e-mails, often from well meaning friends!!

Yes!...I couldn't agree more. Please be very careful about these "alternative" treatments, they are no substitute to proper treatment as recommended by your specialist...that is why he is called a specialist!
