I’m not surprised women turn to The Goop Lab for advice – but it could be very dangerous
The Goop Lab is a frustrating show.
In each episode, you are graced with 30 minutes of generalised wishy-washy statements encouraging the ‘optimisation of self’, health and wellness treatments that can apparently cure everything from anxiety to nerve damage and a whole lot of crying.
