Health warning

Welcome to In Goop Health, where you can pay between £500 and £1,500 to go on a one-day "wellness adventure", learn that antibiotics are like "napalm" for the body, have your aura photographed and dine on such delights as "quinoa and lox swaddled in seaweed" and "ladles of unsalted bone broth". And, as Lindy West points out, mingle with lots of other wealthy white women.

Bizarre, laughable and grotesque, the whole thing could be dismissed as a satirical Chris Morris-style joke if it wasn't for the fact that the involvement of "radioactive swan" Gwyneth Paltrow confirms that it's all too real. It would be great if the Guardian could send Ben Goldacre to the next event.
