Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP are empowering women with psychic vampire repellent

Gwyneth Paltrow and the team at GOOP launched their artisanal, coffee table paywall today.  In the magazine we are treated to GP’s view on health, meaning nasty old doctors with board certifications should stop asking questions and women should just empower themselves with cleanses and detoxes. It doesn’t matter, you see, that science says these … Continue reading

The only thing feminist about GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow is the desire to be the female version of Infowars and Alex Jones

Gwyneth Paltrow recently claimed her detractors don’t do their homework and are afraid of empowered woman. She stated: “The difficulty is that you’re suggesting that people have autonomy over their health and some people love that and some people are like, ‘fuck you, just write me a prescription.’” she says of “challenging medicine as it … Continue reading

GOOP’s physician branded supplements warrant a closer look

A few months ago GOOP rolled out their line of physician approved supplements. The very best supplements curated by experts direct to you for only $90 for one month’s supply or if you sign up for a monthly delivery only $75 a month. The health claims that GOOP makes about these supplements were recently labelled deceptive … Continue reading

GOOP camouflages hormone hints among the hydrangeas

Despite all the GOOP-related press in the past few weeks I still keep to my general frequency of bi-weekly GOOP medical rounding so I can be up to date on their biologically implausible yet expensive health conversations. It seems that after they got all uncensored with me on July 13th there have been no new … Continue reading

GOOP and Tracy Anderson promote anorexia lite for fast weight loss

Summer is here so GOOP is jumping onto the “fast weight loss” fallacy quicker than a jade egg can fall out of a vagina. Their “expert” is Tracy Anderson who shockingly has a new line of granola bars to plug! She is apparently a fitness guru to the stars, but I have never really given … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow admits she doesn’t know what the f**k she’s talking about on Jimmy Kimmel

Gwyneth If-you-want-to eff-with-me-bring-your-A-game Paltrow was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and Kimmel was prepared to ask her about some of her Goop sh*t. He asked about earthing, squatting to empty your bladder, and of course the jade egg. Earthing Regarding earthing, i.e. walking barefoot, Paltrow says she really doesn’t know much, but “they say” (I … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s 3-day anti bloat diet might make you GOOP your pants

Is Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP’s nutritional advice as bad as their medical advice? To answer this question I decided to try the GOOP 3-day anti-bloat diet reset. I really did start with the best of intentions and wanted to give Paltrow and her GOOPsters the benefit of the doubt. Maybe, just maybe they had their food … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s detox smoothie has too much arsenic for my taste

Gwyneth Paltrow threw down the gauntlet. Having people ask about the validity of second-hand medical information from a ghost, wanting explanations about the antiparasitic properties of goat milk, or questioning the physics of recharging a jade egg with lunar energy is apparently more tiresome than adrenal fatigue. Too much entropy!  To remind herself that chicks … Continue reading

Dear Gwyneth Paltrow we’re not f**king with you we’re correcting you, XOXO Science

Dear Ms. Paltrow, I understand you recently said that anyone who is going to fuck with you better bring their A game.   I’m pretty sure you don’t mean comment on your recipes but rather the growing exasperation from medical professionals and journalists alike at the almost constant debunking of the health “advice” and all … Continue reading

The harm and hypocrisy of Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP distilled to 1 image

Yesterday GOOP sent out 2 tweets. The first on cocktails and the next on the staggering cancer statistics. Life comes at you fast, you know? GOOP is obviously oblivious to the fact that alcohol is carcinogenic. Don’t know or don’t care? Probably don’t care to know as talking about the health risks of alcohol interferes … Continue reading
