DESCRIPTION:For our event falling closest to International Women’s Day we’re turning the spotlight towards a thorn in the side of women’s health. \nFounded in 2008 by actress Gwyneth Paltrow\, GOOP has gone from a weekly lifestyle newsletter to a multi million dollar enterprise offering a plethora of new-age ‘wellness’ products and services. They hit the headlines again recently with the release of a six-part documentary series on Netflix ‘The GOOP Lab’. \nThe show features a plethora of pseudoscientific topics such as energy healing\, psychedelic drugs\, cold therapy\, anti-aging\, mediumship\, and female sexuality. \nIn this talk we will take a look at some of their products\, the claims they make (with the safety net of a carefully crafted legal disclaimer)\, and assess the risk to public health. \n\nView event on Facebook\nView event on Meetup\n\nAbout the speaker:\nTracey Jolliffe is a microbiologist working in the NHS. She has presented many talks and posters at a national level. Most notably amongst these are her three previous appearances speaking for Glasgow Skeptics (STIs\, Organ Donation\, and a sold out talk about her evening work as ‘The Batnurse’) \n=== \nDrop-in event.
