I reviewed all 161 of GOOP’s wellness products for pseudoscience. Here’s what I found. | Dr. Jen Gunter

From the article:

In October 2018 Gwyneth Paltrow was interviewed by the BBC  and disagreed that she and goop are engaged in promoting and peddling pseudoscience.

False online claims about health products and the promotion of pseudoscientific practices by both complementary and alternative medicine providers and celebrities has been well-described. Gwyneth Paltrow has previously endorsed therapies that have no scientific basis, such as vaginal jade eggs, apitherapy, and colonic administration of coffee via the rectum, so this researcher sought to identify any products sold by goop.com that could be considered pseudoscience to counter Gwyneth Paltrow’s belief.

Since I’m on a roll today in regards to fake medical shit, here’s another good one. God Bless Dr. Jen Gunter. She’s amazing.

For those not in the know, she’s a gynecologist with a specialty in pain, and deals with reproductive health topics. She ran into the stupidity of Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP website a while ago, and they have been hitting back.

This is a review of every product on the GOOP, and discusses that it’s all high priced garbage and snake oil. Highly lucrative garbage and snake oil.
