If you thought cheating terminal cancer patients was evil, wait until you hear this one. This week's bayblab quack award goes to Tom Cruise and L. Ron Hubbard's scientology cult for their "New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project". This pseudoscience scam is aimed at capitalizing on the health problems of surviving 9-11 rescue workers. The brilliant program apparently encourages people to stop using inhalers or taking anti-depressants because they're evil. Instead, subscribers are encouraged to take vitamins and hang out in saunas to "de-toxify". Shame on you Tom Cruise. I hereby banish you from left-handedness forever.
