Tom Cruise in Scientology controversy

ANI, India
July 2, 2004 • Friday July 2, 2004

Hollywood actor Tom Cruise’s efforts to raise money to open a detox center for 9/11 victims have come under fire, after it was reported that the Long Island clinic has links with scientology.

According to The New York Daily News, Cruise raised more than 1.2 million dollars for the clinic, which is providing a detox center for the WTC victims who are suffering from smoke inhalation. A detox center had earlier been opened in Manhattan in 2002.

However, rumors are rife that the center actually doubles up as a recruitment agency for scientiology followers as scientologists run both the centers.

The Long Island clinic follows the teachings of Scientology, which include exercise, sauna sweating and a diet of vitamins, and minerals that help cleanse the body of toxic residues.

The “Top Gun” star however, denies these rumors, saying that his efforts to help are genuine. “Thousands are still suffering. That’s unacceptable to me, to these heroes and to their families.

We were asked for a second one closer to the rescue workers’ homes,” the report quoted Cruise as saying.
