Actress Gwyneth Paltrow's online store Goop isn't known to be a beacon of good health tips, but information about the latest products under fire, $66 dollar egg-shaped stones made of jade and rose quartz, is being blasted for being "the biggest load of garbage" one San Francisco gynecologist has ever seen on Paltrow's site.
Per Dr. Jen Gunther:
"As for the recommendation that women sleep with a jade egg in their vaginas I would like to point out that jade is porous which could allow bacteria to get inside and so the egg could act like a fomite," she adds. "This is not good, in case you were wondering. It could be a risk factor for bacterial vaginosis or even the potentially deadly toxic shock syndrome."
