This ARTICLE contains a long collection of supposed cancer prevention and treatment tips that originated from a "Cancer Hoax Email".

Cancer Hoax Email

A collection of cancer tips currently circulating via email did not originate from Johns Hopkins as claimed
It also claims that freezing plastic containers or using them in a microwave oven can release cancer-causing dioxins into the container's contents. The "warning" about plastics and dioxins also circulates without the cancer tips section and predates the above version by several years. Both the cancer tips and the plastics dioxin information is supposedly endorsed by Johns Hopkins, a world famous and highly respected medical research school based in the United States.

However, none of the claims in the message were published or in any way endorsed by Johns Hopkins. In fact, Johns Hopkins has released the following statement denying any involvement:

Information falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins called, "CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS" describes properties of cancer cells and suggests ways of preventing cancer. Johns Hopkins did not publish the information, which often is an email attachment, nor do we endorse its contents. For more information about cancer, please read the information on our web site or visit the National Cancer Institute's web site at Please help combat the spread of this hoax by letting others know of this statement.

While some of the anti-cancer tips may contain elements of truth, the fact that they are not supported by Johns Hopkins as claimed in the message...



When years of telling people CHEMOTHERAPY is the only way to survive cancer and indeed eliminate it, the emanate JOHNS HOPKINS INSTITUTE is starting to say that there is another way of doing things, an alternative way you could say.
Remember, the Johns Hopkins Institute does not endorse this.

Alternative Way to Survive Cancer
By Johns Hopkins Institute (NO ENDORSEMENT)

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. It is believed Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's life time naturally.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer
cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors in the natural course of events.

4.If a person has cancer it indicates the person has
multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
environmental, food and lifestyle (lack of sleep) factors..

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies,
changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. What Chemotherapy involves, is the poisoning of the rapidly-growing cancer cells, but also in effect, it 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 It is argued that when the body has too much toxic burden from
chemotherapy and radiation, the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person does invariably 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.

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 build up.

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 dis-ease 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
. 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.

Some Usefull Tips

A. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts
off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutra-Sweet, 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 color. 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 soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

C. Cancer cells thrive in an acidic 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. Can you 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.


1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.

Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as
this releases dioxins from the plastic.


Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at
Castle Hospital
, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He
said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning-Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant and soups, etc., should be removed from the container as a mater of course, and heated in something else.

Paper isn't bad, but you don't know what is in the paper.
It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is
just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead
