The Police: Many blame health problems on years of busting meth labs - 2008-05-17
Sparks, a veteran narcotics officer, is in the Utah Meth Cops Project, a four-week program whose techniques were created by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. The project aims to rid officers' bodies of poisonous chemicals they believe were absorbed during their investigations of countless meth labs.
Supporters say it is simply a miracle. Some critics question its effectiveness and say there is no scientific evidence it works, or even that the officers' ailments are caused by their lab work.
