Gwyneth Paltrow concerned about GMOs, sells ‘spirit dust’ containing hallucinogens

The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis.

Gwyneth Paltrow, human wheat stalk (NO — that has gluten), came onto Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix talk show, Chelsea, this week to discuss a topic dear to her heart: Stuff in products.

. . . .

Gwyneth wants only the very best stuff in her products — the ones she buys andsells, of course — and she wants that for you too! Which is why she has come out strongly in favor of GMO labeling. . . .

Gwyneth, ever radiant in a cerulean mock turtleneck, explained her position:

“Essentially, you know, the reason that I’m so passionate about GMO labeling is because I worry about us as consumers, like big business kind of trying to slip things by us. . . . you know, we don’t know if GMOs are beneficial or harmful (emphasis author’s own) . . . .”

. . . .

. . . .But shenanigans ought to be called where they’re seen. Gwyneth’s favorite treats — especially the ones she sells — are full of ingredients that are maybe beneficial or possibly harmful. And we don’t know which, because they are far less studied than GMOs. . . .

Goop’s “Dust” products, which will run you $65 + tax and shipping for two ounces of, for example, Spirit Dust.

What . . . is Spirit Dust? Some sort of powdered amalgamation of these things: Goji, reishi, longan, astragalus, salvia, and stevia.

. . . Speaking as a typical Goop consumer, I would highly doubt that the majority of my ilk know exactly what effect astralagus, say, might have on their bodies. I have no idea! (I do, however, know that salvia is a strong, naturally occurring hallucinogen.)
