Gwyneth Paltrow Claims Negativity "Changes The Structure" Of Water

Gwyneth Paltrow has put her foot in her moth once again.

In recent months the 41 year-old actress has managed to attract a lot of haters due to several controversial comments she has made. But Paltrow's latest observation is just flat out bizarre.

The 'Iron-Man' star posted a statement on her lifestyle website, Goop, about the intriguing qualities of water, claiming the compound has the ability to feel negativity.

Paltrow promoted the work of Japanese doctor Masuru Emoto, who created the theory that the structure of water can be affected by the human consciousness.

"I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water," her blog post read. "How the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."

"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," she added.

Emoto's theories have been unanimously slammed by his peers, but the Oscar-winning actress still asked her friend, Dr. Habib Sadeghi, to explain what the doctor was trying to prove.

"In his experiments, Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like 'I hate you' or 'Fear.' After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallized under the microscope: It yielded grey, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals. In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like 'I love you' or 'Peace' on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they produced gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals," Sadeghi said.

The theory certainly doesn't sound too convincing, but this just adds to Paltrow's very debatable statements she has made in recent weeks. When discussing the abuse she receives online, mainly through social media, Paltrow compared it to getting ready to go into battle.

"It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience," she said.
