A Series of Strange E-Mails

I have received several e-mails like this today.

A quick one time public service announcement about Lung cancer (no further emails will be sent).

Lung cancer is the cancer responsible for the most deaths in both men and women. Over 85% of lung cancers are related to smoking. More than half of the people who are newly diagnosed with lung cancer are former smokers.

Women are also affected greatly by breast and colorectal cancers. Reduce your risk of cancers by not smoking, eating a healthy diet, using sunscreen and getting regular cancer screenings. Take care.

This one had a title of “Info concerning maintaining fitness”.

They don’t appear to be promoting a web site, selling anything or even have any links to other sites.  And even the information is sensible.

But why?

All I can think of is that someone is testing some new e-mail software.
