that is very interesting - one of the PIs is religiously bound to believe that the detoxification works and who would, in addition face expulsion if she finds that it does not work.
are all the PI's scientologists?
Carpenter is an unknown. He's made public statements that Scientology is not a religion and made other apologetic remarks.
David Carpenter, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany, is currently conducting research under a grant from the US Department of Defense to see if the “rundown” treatment is effective in reducing the symptoms of Gulf War Illness, a disease found in American veterans of the 1990-1991 Gulf War.
But “we have encountered a lot of opposition to our study here, which is one reason it has not started yet,” Carpenter said.
“I am very aware of the many criticisms of the Church of Scientology, which isn’t really a religion at all.”
Thank you for that point about the Purif being a point of faith. I will include this in my letters to the various IRBs.
