Cool! One of Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP Experts Doesn’t Believe HIV Causes AIDS

You’ve probably heard of Gwyneth Paltrow’s mysteriously-named lifestyle brand, Goop. You may not know that, as part of their bougie stuff-you-don’t-need aesthetic, they also offer IRL events that cost hundreds of dollars to attend.

One such event is January’s Goop Summit, which will feature Dr. Kelly Brogan, a “holistic health psychiatrist,” as one of its trusted experts. Thanks to one vigilant blogger, everyone who is considering buying a ticket can know this: Brogan is an AIDS denialist.

In a since-deleted 2014 blog post, Brogan called the fact that HIV causes AIDS a “meme.” On top of calling it a meme, she also called AIDS “the equivalent of certain death,” which is 100% medically untrue!

“Drug toxicity associated with AIDS treatment may very well be what accounts for the majority of deaths,” Brogan wrote. Maybe Brogan can hold a summit with conservative radio host Alex Jones and debate who knows less about the virus.

Brogan is not only against HIV meds, she’s pretty anti-medicine in general. She also recently wrote a piece for the New York Post titled “Why You Should Stop Taking Your Antidepressants.”

And, hey, according to her Instagram, she also doesn’t have faith in the flu vaccine either!

Looks like the Goopers are really getting their money’s worth!
