Gwyneth Paltrow's recipes could give you food poisoning, study finds

© Provided by Independent Print Limited Gwyneth Paltrow has shared some questionable advice in her time - in the last few months alone, she’s suggested we put stone eggs in our vaginas and burn our bras to get over our exes, as well as sharing health advice from a man who talks to ghosts.

But now academics are criticising Paltrow for the potentially dangerous cooking advice in her recipe book, My Father’s Daughter.

According to experts, her chicken recipes could put people at risk of salmonella and campylobacter because she doesn’t give a final temperature that the dishes should reach.

Paltrow is not the only one guilty of this though.

The researchers analysed 29 cookbooks and found that under nine per cent of them included information on the temperatures dishes should reach before being consumed.

Many of the cookbooks were by celebrities, and two of Paltrow’s were found to contain dangerous health advice.

As well as the lack of final cooking temperatures given, in It’s All Good, Paltrow recommends washing raw chicken.

According to the UK Food Standards Agency, this should never be done as it raises the risk of campylobacter, a common cause of food poisoning.

that's some @goop goodness @chrissyteigen and I love you too! #goopmake #regram
