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

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP still want you to put a jade egg in your vagina. It’s still a bad idea.

GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow are so into their jade eggs they are doubling down on the practice. Who am I kidding, a new shipment of jade eggs has hatched and so GOOP is back to flogging them with a letter from an eggthusiast who was dismayed by all the negative press in January. GOOP is just … Continue reading

Toxic hypocrite Gwyneth Paltrow wants you so wasted at the GOOP health event you need an IV

Gwyneth Paltrow is not content with spreading her quasi-medical trumpery via her website. Our lady of the perpetually worried well is bringing her deathly fear of non-existent toxins and chic chicanery live to Los Angeles with an event called In goop health. There for a price ranging from $500-$1,500 (depends how close one wants to get … Continue reading

Ayurvedic medicines may be poisoning you. Literally.

I often read of recommendations for Ayurvedic medicine on sites espousing alternative medicine. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health Ayurvedic medicine originated in India over 3,000 years ago and involves the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other health practices. I didn’t think too much about this practice as a distinct … Continue reading

GOOP wants you to drink activated charcoal chai. Here’s why it’s crap.

Activated charcoal is one of the latest “wellness” trend and by wellness I mean things that charlatans want you to buy that have no hope of helping you. So yes my friends that leads us directly to GOOP and their latest installment in medical stupidity, activated charcoal chai. This concept is so medical inept I hardly … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t have adrenal fatigue because it doesn’t exist

Gwyneth Paltrow has been on a PR push because she is so “effing tired” and wants everyone to know that she has found the cause of her mysterious ailment, adrenal fatigue, and you too can apparently cure/prevent this by buying her carefully curated supplements for $90 a month. I know I said I was going on … Continue reading
