Annoyed with Netflix giving a platform to Goop and its pseudoscience BS

I cant stand Goop or Gwyneth Paltrow. She sells overpriced, unaffordable pseudoscience products to the masses with no scientific evidence and even dangerous advice. Remember Vaginal steaming? She recently had a retreat planned where women paid between 5000-10000$ to participate. It was a giant goop ad, and paltrow made one measly appearance and then hid away in her special celeb quarters. Many women went online and complained. The media is to blame as well for cosigning this BS. Touting unproven ridiculous products and "cures" to women who mostly cant afford them and are desperate to believe a celeb they feel is "honest" Read about Jen Gunter goop's enemy #1. I am disappointed that Netflix allowed a docuseries on her nonsense but I plan to watch for laughs and to spread info about what BS looks like.

Re: Annoyed with Netflix giving a platform to Goop and its pseudoscience BS

pseudoscience,conspiracy theories, flath earth , anti vax etc.

if u ask me there are three reasons
First one people dont want to trust mainstream authorities because there were some scandals in past so it is like a collective paranoia , or trust crysis. they create in their head

Second one, fundamentalism
people tend to reject facts do not suit their views, for example rejection of psychatry mostly caused by Freud's personal views , they dont want to believe/trust in scientific facts

Third one, false information spreads really fast
people are doing it for money even, they create conspiracy theories , create fear and by the views on youtube they make profit
also you can tell lies easily and it can spread really fast on internet, there is no fact checker and people tend to believe them


In summary,
there must be punishment for those who cause harm to others, because these things causes indirect harms but they are really big. But if you put those frauds in prison , people will tend to believe in conspiracies more than ever
"she was threat to big pharma,system"
slogan is ready

Completely agree! I’m so disappointed that Netflix has given Goop a platform to spread their pseudoscience bull crap, which can lead people that are desperate to find relief for their physical and/or mental difficulties to seek out these “treatments” that can be so harmful, or even deadly, to their well being.
