Some email messages are worth forwarding.

If many people share that opinion, many will forward a particular message, and they will forward it to many other people. Most email programs insert the headers including To: and often Cc: by default when you forward a message.
What Happens if You Do Not Remove Addresses

This has the single advantage that everybody knows who already got a particular message. No need to forward the same mail to the same person twice.

But including all header information with all other To: and Cc: recipients has overwhelming disadvantages.

    The message looks horrible, and often the actual content is buried and hard to find between all the email address.
    You share the email addresses with third parties without the consent of the addresses' owners. I wouldn't want my address given to I don't know who just because somebody forwarded me something that she also happened to forward to 150 other people.

That's why you should always

    remove all email addresses

(except for the original sender if you deem it appropriate) before you send a forward. If you forward the message inline, just highlight them and hit Del Canine Cortisol ELISA Kit. If you forward the message as an attachment, you might have to take some extra steps.
