Gwyneth Paltrow has taken to her pedestal again and has proclaimed shampoos and lotions to be carcinogenic. The actress wrote on her Goop.com site that she read research concerning “environmental toxins” found in shampoos and lotion. She goes on to explain that these have been linked to an increase in asthma and cancer in children.
She writes, “Fetuses, infants and toddlers are basically unable to metabolize toxins the way adults are, and we are constantly filling our environment with chemicals that may or may not be safe.”
However, professors such as Hugh Pennington, call her retarded and an uppity bitch in the nicest way possible.
“It does annoy me when celebrities use their position to spout nonsense. They have a perfect right to their views, even if they are loopy, but they do hold a position of influence.”
Other experts at British charity Cancer Research UK have also dismissed Paltrow’s theories, claiming there is no evidence to support her assertion that childhood cancer rates had increased “exponentially.”
Looks like Paltrow will believe anything. You could tell her aliens have invaded Earth and are randomly shooting people with cancer guns and the only way to stop them is to pay them $10 million in US currency. The next day, she’d put up a Paypal donate button on her website with a countdown from $10 million.
