The Surgeon General on Scientology's Criminon/Narconon quack claims


NarCONon is Scientology! Forward: For a systematic, detailed, professional exposure of Scientology's "Narconon" front group, visit the Narconon Exposed web site.

The book "Diet For a Poisoned Planet," David Steinman (Harmony Books, $21.95) contains a lengthy advertisement for Scientology's "Purification Rundown" which is a pivotal part of their "Criminon" and "Narconon" front groups.

Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop offered his summation of the quack medical nonsense which Scientology sells:

Question. Have you heard about a new book called "Diet For a Poisoned Planet," which claims that nearly 100 foods are unsafe to eat because they contain dangerous levels of pesticides?

Answer. "Yes, I read that book. I was amazed any publisher would publish such trash. And that's the best word I can think of. There is really nothing scientific about it. It is a hodge podge of misinformation added to selective bits of old information to prove a thesis that's unprovable. The premise of the entire book is flawed..."

Question. What about the author's detoxification advice? He credits L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology with some of the theories he recommends.

Answer. "My recommendation about detoxification is to keep away from it. You don't need it. I'm not sure it does what this book describes. It's dangerous. I don't think L. Ron Hubbard has credibility in the scientific world. The author's suggestions about detoxification can be detrimental to your health. " - C. Everett Koop, M.D.
