Giving Barley Water to babies instead of human milk. Even scientology
bigot called me "sick" for believing that
scientologists would do this:


The Volunteer Ministerís Handbook
Based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard

Healthy Babies

(Found in the 2D book, compiled by Cass Pool, also known as Cass Warner,
Cass Warner-Pool, Cass Warner-Sperling, etc. The VM Handbook gives as
source The Auditor, Nr. 6. As far as I know, Cass Warner has four

Although the modern emphasis on trade for its own sake may have its
points, there is a limit to which it should be pushed. And wrecking a
baby's health, and worrying its mother to an early grave just to coflect
fees should be frowned upon. (Irony)

The prepared food used today is guaranteed to upset a baby. It is a
powdered mess one is supposed to dissolve in water and feed to the baby.

If you ever tasted it, you would agree with the baby. It's terrible.

More than that, it is total carbohydrate and does not contain the
protein necessary to make tissue and bone. It only makes fat. When you
see one of these bloated, white, modern babies, know that it is being
fed exactly on the doctor's orders: a diet of mixed milk powder, glucose
and water, total carbohydrate.

Breast feeding babies may have a nostalgic background, particularly to a
Freudian oriented medico, but real breast milk again is usually a poor
ration. Modern mothers smoke and sometimes drink. Smoking makes the
milk very musty. Anyway, a nervous modern mother just can't deliver the
right ration. Maybe it's the pace of the times or the breed, but there
are few modern Guernsey-type mothers. So even without drinking or
smoking, one should forget breast feeding.

[Translation: Mary Sue had small tits and was smoking, and L. Ron
Hubbard believed that tit size is important for breast feeding, and he
also noticed that her milk was musty. That is the way Elron does

The largest cause of upset in a baby's early life is just rations. As
an old hand at this, I have straightened out more babies who were cross,
not sleeping, getting sick and all, than it was easy to keep a record
of. These babies were all, just plain hungry. Fed, yeah. But with
what? Terrible tasting, high carbohydrate powdered milk solutions, or
skim breast milk from an overworked mother. And the little things were
ready to toss in their chips. Some had gone into a stupor and just
didn't care anymore. Some were trying to quit entirely. And they all
recovered and got alert and healthy when they were given a proper

A ration must contain a heavy percentage of protein. Protein is the
budding block for nerves and bones. A soldier, wounded, will not heal
without heavy protein intake. Ulcers will not get well without a heavy
protein diet being given.

To make brain, bone and tissue, the baby must be given protein. And
from 2 days old to at least 3 years. That makes strong, pretty, alert
babies that sleep weil and do well.

When I first tackled this problem, it was a personal matter. I write
from the viewpoint of a father, of course, a profession in which I have
had experience. I had a little boy who was not going to live and 1 had
to act fast (1) to get him out of the hospital and (2) to discover his
trouble and (3) to remedy it. The total time available was less than 24
hours. He was dying.

So (1) 1 got him out of the hospital, helped by a hot temper and a
trifle of promised mayhem. And (2) 1 found he wouldn't or couldn't eat.
And (3) I recalled all my dietary and endocrine studies that 1 studied
in those places the reporters have now agreed I never attended.

Actually I recalled further than that. Roman troops marched on barley.
Barley is the highest protein content cereal. And from a deep past I
called up a formula.

The Scientology Handbook (1994), Page 529 (halfway down):

Barley Formula for Babies

The foremost reason a baby doesn't do well is poor rations. And to
remedy that, here is a formula one can use:

15 ounces of barley water
10 ounces of homogenized milk
3 ounces of corn syrup (As the Romans had honey, 2 ounces of honey may
be used instead of corn syrup, if desired. Do not use lactose [a sugar
found in milk, used in infant foods] as a substitute.) The amount of
syrup should be varied - depending on the baby - some like it weak -
some take it stronger.

This formula can be multiplied by any number according to the number
of bottles desired but the ratio remains the same.

To make the barley water, put about a half cup of whole barley in a
piece of muslin, tie loosely to allow for expansion. It is slowly
boiled in a covered, bented pot not made of aluminum for 61/2 (Note:
six and a half -Chris) hours in about 4 pints of water. (In venting
the pot, one allows steam to escape either through a vent build in the
lid [if there is one] by placing the cover slightly askew so there is
an opening between the cover and pot.) Barley water will turn very,
very pink. This gives about the right consistency of barley water for
making the formula as above.

You don't feed the baby the actual barley, only the water mixed with
the milk and corn syrup, in the ratio as given in the formula above.

Do not add anything else to this formula, such as vitamins or cream
"to make the formula more nutritious." The formula is as laid out

Use this formula and have healthier babies!

(Sure, Ron. Instead of letting babies drink their mother's milk, we'll
feed them a barley formula. Does anyone else see anything wrong with
Ron's view of the world here?)
