    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.

          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.

              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.

                        Makes me wonder about the food itself I honestly don't believe it's 100% food. That or it's pumped with to may chemicals.

                          Im also suspicious (but respectful) of folks and their allergies. Most have never been tested for anything. Once long ago I ate cooked crab, just crab. Later that evening broke out in horrible hives all over face and neck. Scared me off crab until weeks later news reported high mercury counts in that seasons crab. Been eating it ever since no problem.

                              gf sensitivities don't exist lol gluten allergies and celiac diseases do obviously. most people feel mildly like crap after eating bread is because of the commercial yeast. slowly leavened bread with long living yeast strains are what we should be eating (sourdough is amazing). because the body can't properly ferment shitty commercial yeast. it rises too quickly to keep up with consumer demand for wonder bread. buy local slowly leavened bread and watch how quick your 'allergies' stop.

                                    Trevor: but seriously in Africa like food allergies ain't even a thing. Now I know your thinking " well that's because in Africa you don't have food", no we have food you racist its just rashes are impossible to detect when you have Ebola.
                                    actually funny story my friend broke his arm and we wanted to take him to the hospital and he said no I'm good i don't wanna pay 100,000$ for a cast lmao

                                                        I am allergic to pecans and it kills me, not literally, but also maybe not yet? I think it's because I grew up poor and in the country. We ate them from the trees everywhere and overtime my body stopped wanting to be so destitute? Like Bish, you are 30 and not that poor now...stop.
                                                        My Grandmomma made authentic Georgia pecan pie. Now I can't eat pecan pie at Christmas, but I think I just need an epi pen, her recipe and go to town.
                                                        Also, pecans hurt on the inside and coming out too.

She ate at our house once and her fork was bent and "melted" looking, she also had weird blue eyes, like they were purple looking and her whites of her eyes were purplish white. Her and her mom had no furniture at their house and moved a lot. She only stayed for the summer and left suddenly. She used to freak us all out and make us laugh by spitting on things and they would turn black or sizzle, one time a piece of wood started to smoke. I think she was a fuckin alien or something.

Way off base. 80% of people worldwide with Celiac disease are not diagnosed at all. The highest rate int he world is probably in Algeria (that's right, Africa, man!), or Pakistan. Neither of those places is it possible for those people to avoid gluten. They die of strokes and or organ failure. It's absolutely tragic. Have some mercy. Celiac is not an allergy, although some people do have an IgE mediated allergy to gluten. It's a protein that acts as an opiate, can trigger psychosis in people who are sensitive (even if they aren't celiacs), and can trigger balance and muscle weakness in gluten ataxia (also not celiac, but causes a rare kind of brain damage). It's actually under diagnosed. Wheat has been bred to have way more gluten than ever before so it's triggering more and more of these illnesses now. It's being sprayed with glyphosate just before harvest which sensitizes people to it because glyphosate disrupts nerves too. We've created a monster.

My sister's husband got surgery on a triple hernia in his back including two nights' stay and they paid 300 euros, meds-room-specialist-surgery-meals included. And no, they have no special insurance, it's basic health care here. And yes, it's quality health care. And yes, you get to choose your own doctor and hospital.

                                                                                    What the hell, America??

I can’t speak for every hospitals, but keeping their prices a wild secret unfortunately is the only way they can keep afloat when faced with cost cutting demands from insurances.

No bread is just wheat, flour, salt, and yeast. No ingredient label on the back will ever have less than 5 ingredients (unless it's at a high end specialty market). To keep large box stores full, we have to put in additives for shelf live and a lot of those are sourced from industrial byproducts. Until more Americans start growing their own food, this issue will continue.
