reference CSN article: http://csn.cancer.org/node/176699

I'm confused and would appreciate confirmation of either:
Johns Hopkins Update - truth or rumor

I googled this and found this: "Cancer Info From Johns Hopkins Hoax Email"

http://www.hoax-slayer.com/cancer-tips-john-hopkins.shtml

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ also:

"Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins University- Fiction!"

http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/j/johnshopkinscancer.htm

Summary of the eRumor:
A lengthy email about cancer and nutrition said to have been published by the famous Johns Hopkins University.

The Truth:
The suggestions in the email do not appear to have come from any reputable medical source and Johns Hopkins University says it did not come from them.

In a published statement, the university said, "Johns Hopkins did not publish the email, entitled "Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins," nor do we endorse its contents.
