Unification Church Launches New Naturopathy School

The University of Bridgeport has launched a naturopathy college, the fourth such school in the United States. The university, owned by the Rev, Sun Myung Moon's Unificiation Church, opened its chiropractic college in 1991. Alternative and Complementary Therapies (an offbeat journal) states that the Professors' World Peace Academy (PWPA) university received a $30 million grant from "to explore eleven new areas, including alternative medicine." PWPA, founded by Rev. Moon, is described on its Web site as "a tax-exempt non-profit educational organization founded to support the academic community's role in the pursuit of world peace."
