    Re: Travolta's teen son dead.

    Preston said in 2003 that she had detoxed her son in a programme devised by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. “I had a friend of mine, an environmental scientist and a toxicologist, go through our home and tell us exactly what was going on in the home. It wasn’t only the carpet. We had lots of cleansers under the sink.”

    Critics of Scientology suggested yesterday that Jett may have been suffering from autism, a condition that the church does not recognise because it considers mental illness to be psychosomatic and argues that it should be treated through spiritual healing.

    Joey Travolta, the star’s film-maker younger brother and an autism activist, reportedly clashed with his brother about what was wrong with Jett. Joey Travolta worked on a documentary called Normal People Scare Me and helped to found Actors with Autism.

    Scientologists are kooks. This is a tragedy that is played out in thousands of lives, not just famous actors.

    Re: Travolta's teen son dead.

    I feel if due to the parents religion of Scientology that if they withheld meds that could have prevented this seizure? The parents should be charged with neglect. Also what happened to him falling and hitting his head? There were even reports there was blood all over makes me wonder if a cover up have went down

    Seizures normally involve falling. Especially gran mall seizures. You don't stay standing through one of them.

    I get that but my point is why are they now saying he did not fall? What happened to him hitting his head? Also they sure did cremate the body pretty fast. Just seems strange to me

    He had a seizure, which caused him to fall and hit his head

    Oh - nevermind I thought you were asking something different. I have not been following this story in the slightest, I only heard the initial reports.

    Kali...the media is so stupid they can`t splain things. I believe the coroners take was that the minor blow to the head was NOT a contributing factor,(if the kid fell he DID hit his head) NBStupid CBStupid ABStupid and all the otherSTUPIDS "translate insignificant blow to the head".or "non-contributing injury to the head" as meaning `he didn`t hit his head. Why has none of our REPORTER wanabe crowds answered the question of "was the boy on anti-siezure meds"? Not a psych med this one may have saved his life,but Lafayet ron hubard in his vast science fiction knowledge of medicine had determined that simply evicting the evil XENU from the families life would fix everything.

    Re: Travolta's teen son dead.

    Well, be that as it may, anti-seizure meds tend to have rather extreme side effects in many cases, and I suppose it is the right of a parent (and the right of a 16-year-old boy, provided he is of sound mind) to decide whether or not to take such meds or forego them.

    Of course, if the Travoltas were poor, CPS would no doubt be sniffing around.
    But they're wealthy, they can afford to take legal recourse if unfairly persecuted, and Child Protective Services tends to steer clear of people like that.
    It is not, in fact, a crime not to force anti-seizure meds upon a 16-year-old who is refusing them.
    Whether it's a crime to withhold anti-seizure meds from a mentally disabled teenager who suffers from a seizure disorder is another matter, but 1. we have no proof the Travoltas did this, and 2. we don't even know for sure that Jett was mentally or psychologicaly disabled; all of Hollywood claims he was, including John Travolta's brother, who made a documentary about autism... but the Travoltas themselves claim their son suffered from no illness except Kawasaki Disease, a rare malady (occurs in 19 out of every 100000 kids) that he contracted as a baby.

    Perhaps they're right.
    Or perhaps they were within their rights to withhold anti-seizure meds from Jett, even if he was autistic or otherwise ill. Perhaps they felt the seizures were more managable than the side effects of the meds.
    The thing is, we really don't know all the details, and neither does Hollywood.
    It would behoove us all to wait for more information before jumping to conclusions.

    There is another side to the coin. Our children are deserving of protection from American medicine(Log onto `CDC/WrongfulDeaths in medical facilities`). Do you want the pharmaceutical industry to load your kid up with toxic chinese manufactured drugs,far from perfect vacines that lead to such problems as AUTISM,ADD,ADHD,infertility,and autoimune disorders,just to name a few.Good nutrition, a few vitamins ,and an apple a day in most cases will keep the bad doctor away. Back to seizures. A known organ defect,treatable with meds,(by a COMPITENT doctor) should have been treated.
