The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
A study shows many people who think they have allergies don’t, U.S. hospitals must now list their treatment prices online, and a self-driving car hits a robot pedestrian.

It’s cute to think it costs only 80k to become a doctor

Imaginary? When the goddamn AMA and study of psychology stop unlawfully making 80 subject test groups of unknowing patients they and the fucking pharmaceutical industry make humam lab rats out of and money off of you can holla back about imaginary allergies and phanthom hypercondria. Until then miss me with that bullshit

Just 5 years ago, the FDA published its first ever guidance on labeling of gluten free products. Before that, from the 1950s to 2014, all people with proven Celiac or valid IgE mediated anaphylactic allergy to gluten, gluten ataxia, gluten triggered psychosis, gluten triggered migraines, and general gluten sensitivity, ... had to make their best guess for gluten free foods. The reason it's a 'trend' now is because food companies have been responding to the FDA guidance, sometimes in a positive way, by providing labeling, and sometimes negatively.

 One of those negative ways is to attempt to discredit the need for labeling by influencing opinion on social media. https://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/Allergens/ucm362880.htm It's really sad when people make jokes in irresponsible ways, that can hurt people, without ever checking to see what the FDA has to say about it. FDA is far from perfect, but Trevor and lots of misinformed people could've saved themselves the embarrassment of putting foot in mouth, by just checking the site.

Premium food ideas have always been very profitable, Grass Fed, Organic and Gluten Free, not to mention Vegan, and Paleo labels all increase profits for everyone from farmers to manufacturers, shipping companies, and stores. They also spur innovation. They don't fit the plans of chemical companies though, who prefer to plan for a food system that requires the use of chemicals to produce food (glyphosate ripening of grains, fertilizer dependence, antibiotics as a growth enhancer, etc..).

If you want to understand more about it, go and see the website "Cornucopia Institute" which is a watchdog for Organic food producers, or the website "Gluten Free Watchdog" which does the same for GF labeling. If you really want to capitulate to the chem co's, hey go ahead. I'll be on the side of the clean food / slow food people though.

And what's driving the criticism of GF is probably more corporate oriented than any concern for health. Don't be fooled into thinking we're living under a government. We're living in the world created by corporations that are currently poorly regulated. Trevor just directed us to stand in the way of an oncoming bus by ridiculing food sensitivity, in particular gluten-related allergy. It's irresponsible and short sighted.

It would've been funnier to make fun of the study's probable biases or funding or to show how it compares to other studies done on that subject. Science is not perfect, not until humans are perfect.

The state of the world is so bad that we now have robot on robot violence.

My mental health meds are necessary. My condition is not from lifestyle so there’s nothing I can do about it. If I don’t get my meds I will cost a lot more from my symptoms going out of whack. I am unfortunately one of the lucky ones. Honestly the lion’s share of my financial means is because I chose not to have children. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it is for people who want to be parents and have to make this decision for $$ reasons.

This is so ignorant I almost want to stop watching The Daily Show all together. I have severe food allergies including peanuts, tree nuts, soy, apples, and peaches and yes I went to an allergist and had a skin and blood test to confirm. My food allergies literally effects every aspect of my life and it is very socially isolating.

Whatever they took out, it ain't your appendix honey - not on your left side lol.....

I recently started attending a funeral service school and the first rule we learned in ethics was that it's a law in NY to give prices over the phone to any one who calls and asks for prices even if they are not looking to make arrangements. Anyone who comes in we give them a paper with a list of prices (that we go over with them and/or that they take with them) of the funeral home expenses because not all homes charge the same prices so people do like to look around and we are required to tell anyone the prices at any time asked. Apparently Funeral Homes will get "secret shoppers" as well to make sure workers are adhering to the proper laws and conducts and the most common one is calling and asking for pricing. I wondered why hospitals didn't do the same.
Danielle Dickson
Medical student here, sorry Trevor but your appendix is on the right side not left.
Annie-France Cheriki
Lol, Trevor is showing his left side when talking about an appendectomy.

Omg what is this? Trevor, this is spreading very horrendous information. Okay actual people who know something, know but when you have a real allergy and you consume stuff that don't work for you, you actually die (anaphylactic shock). I died twice almost, only the hospital intensive care saved me. - Besides these food allergies where this came from for me, you also can have very serious allergies for animals, dust mites and more- and they have a incapacitating effect.

Hospitals and Health Insurance are the BIGGEST SCAMS in America.
