Whether she's claiming that water has feelings or sharing her favourite healthy recipes, Gwyneth Paltrow uses her weekly Goop blog to share her innermost thoughts and prized tips for a better life.

This week, the 43-year-old A-lister has shared some invaluable advice with her readers on the dangers of mobile phones and tap water.

Writing on her blog, the mother-of-two has shared a post entitled: 'Are Cell Phones and WiFi Signals Toxic?', in which she says it's almost impossible to remember a time without smartphones.

She then goes on to claim that this makes it equally easy to forget that the technology is still relatively new, with safety requirements that, for the most part, are generally untested.

She writes: 'The scientific community’s rumblings about brain cancer and the new-to-us affliction “electro-sensitivity” are worth exploring, at the very least, so we tapped three experts in the field.'

Gwyneth consults Dr. David Carpenter, Ann Louise Gittleman, and Devra Davis, to help her readers 'understand the complicated and messy world of cell phone and WiFi safety.'

One of her experts, Nutritionist Ann Louise Gittlemen, claims: 'The bad news, unfortunately, is that cell phone radiation has been associated with many types of cancer, the best known being brain tumors.

'The longer the hours of use, and years of use, the greater the risk.'

Weighing in on the claims made on Goop, Martyn Landi, Press Association's Technology Correspondent, said: 'This subject is not a new one, but labelling all gadgets and technology as though they are toxic is somewhat irresponsible.

'The WHO said as recently as 2014 that there is still no substantial evidence of adverse effects being cause by mobile phone use.

'Yes, they have suggested that there could be some risk, but additional research is still needed.

'They have recommended reducing use where possible as a precaution, but not a blanket ban.

'Nothing has been proven, and suggesting outright that they are toxic is just basic scaremongering and doesn't help anyone.'

Health aficionado Gwyneth also makes a case for being cautious about drinking tap water.

She writes: 'While bottled water or filtered water are often a step up from what you get out of the tap, not all waters are created equal. We tapped two experts in the field to help us understand what could be in our tap water, what’s really dangerous, and the best ways to keep it clean.'

Calling on Research analyst Paul Pestano, the article states that people should always read their water safety reports that their utility sends annually.

Apparently these reports, which most people throw in the bin, contain a lot of critical information, including the level of contaminants in your water.

Meanwhile, William Wendling, who has been studying water for 20 years, added: 'There’s such a long list of things to be worried about in water. Water’s friendly - it’s the water of life, and it carries stuff with it. So whatever it passes through, it picks up, grabs onto, and brings into your house.

'The problem is we’re dealing with a very toxic environment that the water passes through on its way. We’re dealing with a big problem.'
