NASA's ex-scientist calls Goop's wearable healing stickers 'a load of BS'.
This is not the first time Goop has tried to sell utter nonsense to the public. Goop previously suggested that women cram $66 jade eggs into their vagina. Goop's misleading sexual articles have led to the invention of something disgusting, because who would want to shove a jade egg up there?
Now what are they trying to sell us? Goop is selling Body Vibes stickers. You can get a packet of 24 for $120. The stickers are claimed to have a Bio Energy Synthesis Technology. This sounds totally tempting, right? No. Not at all! In fact, it's so NOT tempting that even an ex NASA scientist called BS on the claim by Goop. These are supposed to be wearable healing stickers which re-balance the energy frequency in our bodies. This may work as a fine marketing strategy for teenagers.
Goop claims the stickers were made of, or contained, some carbon material similar to NASA spacesuit material.
A NASA's ex scientist aid this is just another 'load of BS'.
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,” Goop says on its website.
“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.”
But NASA told CNNMoney it doesn't use carbon material to line its suits, and its current spacesuit has no carbon fibers in it at all.
Mark Shelhamer, ex Chief scientist from NASA clarifies that NASA doesn't use carbon material for making spacesuits. Even if they would add carbon material, it would just add strength to spacesuits and not measure vitals or heal you or do some other weird thing to your body like a Goop sticker might be claimed to do.
Mark Shelhamer, former chief scientist at NASA’s human research division, wasn’t wooed by Body Vibes or its secret research.
“Wow,” he told Gizmodo. “What a load of BS this is.”
Goop has issued an apology for the 'communication error' and removed the claim from their website. Goop has released this statement:
As we have always explained, advice and recommendations included on goop are not formal endorsements and the opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of goop. Our content is meant to highlight unique products and offerings, find open-minded alternatives, and encourage conversation. We constantly strive to improve our site for our readers, and are continuing to improve our processes for evaluating the products and companies featured. Based on the statement from NASA, we’ve gone back to the company to inquire about the claim and removed the claim from our site until we get additional verification.
Goop is one of those websites that claims random fantasies to attract customers. This website doesn't care to check its claims no matter how magical they seem. Goop turns out to be a money sucking portal in return of useless products for its customers.
Goop is not just putting away customers best interests at sake but also their safety. Their recommendations never completely make sense.
What will they try selling us next, some snakes that make their own oil?
