An NHS chief has taken aim at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop wellness brand in a speech about the potential impact of “fake news” on the public’s health.In a speech at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford, Sir Simon Stevens, NHS chief executive, warned against the proliferation of “dubious ‘wellness’ products and dodgy procedures” now available on the internet.
NHS Chief Takes Aim At Gwyneth Paltrows Goop And Booming Wellness Industry
“Alleged health products” sold online can vary from useless to harmful, he said – calling homeopathy an “old fake” and criticising Paltrow’s Goop platform in the week that its TV tie-in, The Goop Lab, premiered on Netflix. 
“Fresh from controversies over jade eggs and unusually scented candles, Goop has just popped up with a new TV series in which Gwyneth Paltrow and her team test vampire facials and back a ‘bodyworker’ who claims to cure both acute psychological trauma and side effects by simply moving his hands two inches above a customer’s body,” said Stevens.
The brand “peddles” psychic vampire repellant, and promotes colonic irrigation and DIY coffee enema machines, he continued, “despite them carrying considerable risks to health and NHS advice clearly stating there is, ’no scientific evidence to suggest there are any health benefits associated with colonic irrigation”.Related... Don’t Get Gooped! Why Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘Science’ Is So Convincing The spread of inaccurate and misleading health information via the “booming wellness industry” is leading people to take risks with their health, as well as wasting money on too-good-to-be-true remedies, Stevens warned
“We all know that lies and misinformation can be round the world at the touch of a button – before the truth has reached for its socks, never mind got its boots on,” he said. “Myths and misinformation have been put on steroids by the availability of misleading claims online.”
In a speech that ranged in its references from the original snake-oil salesmen of the 19th century to the so-called ‘Wakefield Generation’ who missed out on the original MMR jab, Stevens warned that Russian bots were freshly undermining public faith in essential vaccines on social media.
Stevens said the term “fake news” is often associated with politics, but that “people’s natural concern for their health, and particularly about that of their loved ones, makes this particularly fertile ground for quacks, charlatans, and cranks.”Related... 5 Things You Shouldn't Be Putting Anywhere Near Your Vagina, According To Dr Jen Gunter Gwyneth Paltrow Speaks Out On 'Smells Like My Vagina' Candle Uproar A Vagina Spa Is Opening In London And This Is Where They Can Shove Their Vajacial
