Dr. Jen Gunter (Goop slayer extraordinaire/badass OB/GYN) on the latest vaginal cleaning product:

8. Dr. Jen goes after ALL the bullshite... lol!

This is a particular favorite:

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

Abstract

Objective: To identify evidence that Gwyneth Paltrow is correct in her statement that the website GOOP does not sell pseudoscience.

Materials and Methods: A search of the products sold on GOOP.com in the wellness section.

Results:
Biologically implausible therapies and ill-researched products were identified. The majority of health products (90%) could not be supported by science.

Conclusions: There is no evidence to support Gwyneth Paltrow’s claim that goop is free of pseudoscience. In fact the opposite is true, goop is a classic example of pseudoscience profiteering. The bulk of their products are useless, but some could be harmful.

Keywords: jade, crystals, vagina, coffee, enema, supplements, toxins, medical conspiracy theories, Epstein Barr Virus, mediums, vitamin B12 injections

Introduction


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.

3. I'm just going to go ahead and give this a heartfelt

NO.

I watched the video at the site, and noted that the "blossom brush" is made out of silicon. Yes, they said "silicon". Not "silicone".

Just no.

5. Nope...nope...

nope.

The vagina is self-cleaning. Messing with that is just asking for problems down there.

Not sure what's going on with other ladies' hoohahs, but who am I to say.

14. Oh, look! Another completely (PINK) unnecessary product

designed to convince women that they are 'unclean' and to rack up lots of money in the process. Ugh. The reply thread is glorious, though. The people who came up with this deserve all the dragging in the world, and they are getting it.
