Join Edinburgh Skeptics online for the last of our four 2021 Edinburgh Science Festival events. Tracey Jolliffe - In GOOP Health? Founded 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'. The show features a plethora of pseudoscientific topics such as energy healing, psychedelic drugs, cold therapy, anti-aging, mediumship, and female sexuality. In 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. About the speaker: Tracey 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 Edinburgh Skeptics (STIs, Organ Donation, and detailing her work as 'The Batnurse')
