According to Tina, Gwyneth Paltrow's full of goop

Truth in Advertising or Tiina.org a consumer watchdog group that sets its sites on deceptive advertising, has alerted government regulators about what is claims are more than fifty instances where Gwyneth Paltrow's site Goop has made unsubstantiated, deceptive health claims about products it sells or recommends. The complaint filed Tuesday with two California district attorneys urging them to looks into Goops deceptive marketing tactics. According to TINA's site;

"The district attorneys are part of the California Food, Drug and Medical Device Task Force, which last October reached a $1 million agreement with MyPillow after TINA.org supplied the task force with the findings of a deceptive marketing investigation into the
pillow company."

According to TINA.org's site, the

"complaint comes one year after NAD opened an inquiry in which it requested that Goop provide substantiation for brain claims made in the marketing of Moon Juice dietary supplements sold on Goop.com. At the time, Goop said it would permanently discontinue the claims in question. But the inquiry made clear that Goop has an obligation as a marketer to verify the efficacy claims of all products it promotes."

I just don't understand how they could come to the conclusion that advocating women embrace vaginal steaming as a way to "cleanse the uterus" and touting the health benefits of shoving $66 dollar egg-shaped pieces of jade into their vaginas would somehow be deceptive. But then again there are more than 45 others examples to choose from.
