I recently came across an article (http://premaseem.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/how-to-avoid-cancer/) called How to Avoid Cancer which is supposedly from Johns Hopkins Hospital. 

This DID NOT come from John Hopkins Hospital. They have released information on THEIR official website denying and calling it a hoax at this website link:

"Cancer Update Email -- It's a Hoax!

Español

STATEMENT: EMAIL HOAX REGARDING CANCER

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.  The email also contains an incorrect spelling of our institution as "John" Hopkins; whereas, the correct spelling is "Johns" Hopkins. For more information about cancer, please read the information on our web site or visit the National Cancer Institute.  Please help combat the spread of this hoax by letting others know of this statement."

There is more to the statement, but I am not printing it all on here. Just enough so people know John Hopkins stance on this hoax.
