- Is Tom Cruise a Cretin?

I usually ignore celebrities but when they blatantly demonstrate their idiocy I can't help myself. Below are excerpts from a Matt Lauer interview with Tom Cruise today.

MATT LAUER: //aren't there examples, and might not Brooke Shields be an example, of someone who benefited from one of those drugs?

TOM CRUISE: all it does is mask the problem, Matt. And if you understand the history of it, it masks the problem. That's what it does. That's all it does. You're not getting to the reason why. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance.

Minutes later in the same interview....

TOM CRUISE: But what happens, the antidepressant, all it does is mask the problem. There's ways of vitamins and through exercise and various things. I'm not saying that that isn't real. That's not what I'm saying. That's an alteration of what-- what I'm saying. I'm saying that drugs aren't the answer, these drugs are very dangerous. They're mind-altering, anti-psychotic drugs. And there are ways of doing it without that so that we don't end up in a brave new world. // the thing that I'm saying about Brooke is that there's misinformation, okay. And she doesn't understand the history of psychiatry. She-- she doesn't understand in the same way that you don't understand it, Matt.

Here is a definition of Vitamin: Vitamins are organic chemicals that a given living organism requires in trace quantities for good health, but which the organism cannot synthesize, and therefore must obtain from its diet.

It appears Mr. Cruise believes that taking vitamins may help cure illnesses but, he does not believe there is such a thing as a chemical imbalance in the body. So, if there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance, how can there be any benefit to taking vitamins (i.e. organic chemicals)? Tom, please explain the biochemistry….

Based on what I have seen on the videotape, I diagnose Mr. Cruise with cretinism. As everyone knows, cretinism is a due to iodine deficiency and causes a chemical imbalance which results in goiter, hypothyroidism and mental retardation. People who have this condition are known as cretins or idiots.

But, if Tom Cruise takes vitamins how can he have an iodine deficiency? Of course, everyone knows that iodine is an essential mineral and not a vitamin!

"But there is a genuine sense in which the soul has its chemistry, and 'a deficiency of iodine will turn a clever man into an idiot.' "- Hocking, W. E., Self, Its Body and Freedom, pp. 58, 59."

Personally, I admit to overdosing on Vitamin V occasionally. But, that's a story for another time.

And what is Tom up to this week? Only the HUDNALL knows!
