tomcruise.jpgLooks like I jumped on the wrong 'Tom Cruise is crazy' story this morning. Page Six is reporting that the dedicated crusader against modern medicine will be a appearing at a benefit in lower Manhattan tonight, to raise money for a program that has been using a Scientology-influenced potion to "cure" firefighters of smoke inhalation suffered on 9/11. The Church have opened a clinic called Downtown Medical, where they allegedly treat firefighters for free, but charge civillians four figures for the "purification rubdown". The treatment was invented by L. Ron Hubbard himself; doctors maintain that it's nothing but "worthless quackery consisting of sauna sweating, ingestion of cooking oil and large doses of niacin." Support of that quackery at tonight's event will cost you $6,250 – but as you'll also get "face time" with Cruise himself, your particular feelings about the healing properties of cooking oil probably shouldn't have to enter into it.
