Everyone has seen the pictures of Katie Holmes and her mouth sores soon after her relationship with Tom Cruise went public. Was it a result of too much kissing? Cold Sores? Well, The Daily News is reporting that the latest speculation is that it is side affects from a Church of Scientology "detoxification" procedure involving the vitamin niacin. They go on to say, "Science-fiction writer and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard maintained that taking niacin in combination with exercise and sauna sessions helps purge the body of "radiation," Hubbard's shorthand for negative alien substances in the body. The B-complex vitamin - which is used in traditional medicine to decrease cholesterol and improve circulation - can cause a red flush on the face and a diffuse itchy rash on the body when taken in large doses." When asked if this could be a result of the detoxification procedure, offended Scientology reps responded, "Whatever you see on her face has got nothing to do with us. It's insulting that you would ask such a thing."
Hmmm....sounds like a bit of a far fetched theory to me. I still don't understand though, WHY would she leave the house like that, especially just to go shopping??!
