In the 1960s Hubbard gave certain dietary recommendations,[97] writing that breastfeeding should be avoided if the mother is smoking, drinking or is lacking good nutrition herself.[98] Hubbard described common replacement formulas as "mixed milk powder, glucose and water, total carbohydrate" and offered as an alternative to commercial products what he called the "Barley Formula" made from barley water, homogenized milk and corn syrup.[99] Hubbard claims that he "picked it up in Roman days,"[100] referring to the use of barley.[101] Hubbard crafted the barley formula to, in his words, provide "a heavy percentage of protein"[100] and called it "the nearest approach to human milk that can be assembled easily."[102] Although the formula is still popular with many Scientologists, health practitioners advise that it is an inappropriate replacement due to the absence of important nutrients like Vitamin C,[103] the lack of which causes scurvy (a deficiency disease!).

pretty much, this guy just made up stuff that people follow and since he had absolutely no scientific knowledge it is not safe at all.

Narconon manages a number of drug treatment centers worldwide and was founded by William Benitez in 1966.[124] Benitez was an inmate who found a book by Hubbard in the Arizona State Prison library and got himself and other inmates off drugs.

the Church of Scientology has, from its inception, been one of the most controversial, coming into conflict with the governments and police forces of several countries (including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada[137] and Germany) numerous times over the years.

Conflicting claims about L. Ron Hubbard's life, in particular accounts of Hubbard discussing his intent to start a religion for profit, and of his service in the military.[145]

Attempts to legally force search engines such as Google and Yahoo to omit any webpages critical of Scientology from their search engines (and in Google's case, AdSense), or at least the first few search pages.[146]

In France, the Church of Scientology was categorized as a sect (or cult) in the report of the National Assembly of France in 1995.[180] A more recent government report in 2000 categorized the church as an "absolute sect" and recommended that all its activities be prohibited.[181]

The Church of Scientology and its many related organizations have amassed considerable real estate holdings worldwide, likely in the hundreds of millions of dollars, as well as a large amount of other funds from the practice of auditing.[145] Hubbard was accused in his lifetime of adopting a religious façade for Scientology to allow the organization to maintain tax-exempt status and to avoid prosecution for false medical claims.[198] There have been numerous accounts from Hubbard's fellow science-fiction authors and researchers, notably Harlan Ellison, Neison Himmel, Sam Merwin, Sam Moskowitz, Theodore Sturgeon, Lloyd Arthur Eshbach, and Lyle Stuart,[179] of Hubbard stating on various occasions that the way to get rich was to start a religion.[199]

Scientology pays members commissions on new recruits they bring in, encouraging Scientology members to "sell" Scientology to others
