Gwyneth Paltrow has copped a lot of criticism over her controversial health advice and products over the past year, but now things have stepped up a level.
Gwyneth’s brand Goop have recently released body stickers which claim to have healing powers, to help keep you more upbeat and increase your levels of enthusiasm.
The brand has promoted these stickers, known as Body Vibes, as products that use “NASA space suit material” to “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies.”
Each pack can set you back around $80-$160 AUD… so naturally we’re all instantly like, ain’t nobody got money for that…
But if they have these mysterious healing powers, then maybe they are worth it, right?
Well, NASA wasn’t too happy about this little reference and have come out of the woodworks to set some facts straight.
The Goop site specifies, “Human bodies operate at an ideal energetic frequency, but everyday stresses and anxiety can throw off our internal balance, depleting our energy reserves and weakening our immune systems."
"Body Vibes stickers (made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear) come pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing them to target imbalances.”
A rep from NASA’s spacewalk office has stepped forward to tell Gizmodo that this isn’t true, as they “do not have any conductive carbon material lining the spacesuits."
Former chief scientist at NASA’s human research division, Mark Shelhamer, also spoke about the product, saying, “What a load of BS this is.”
Hmm… things seems to be going from bad to worse...
