No no no doctors are bad they give opiates out like candy, and never have a good plan to get a person off of them.

This whole segment is a demonstration of how stupid the majority of people are. The idea that adults fall for magic beans is just pathetic.

Mehmet is not attractive. Because he has little integrity. John Oliver is incredibly attractive, because he has a great deal of integrity. Quantity does matter.

I'm surprised Dr. Oz hasn't promoted ayahuasca or other psychedelics yet.. Just a matter of time (hey, at least they have science behind them)

I know a doctor who passionately studies the work of great composers, but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t say it’s a scientific pursuit. And if he recommended Chopin for blood sugar issues, I’d find another doctor...even if he was REALLY likable and passionate. But then, I’m no Morning Joe.

Good morning good afternoon and welcome to finding America so on the news today there's talking about homeless people living on the streets special in California because they are Renta tension to their self oh wow can you believe this is like it's something new and you just Discover it no I got news for you this is been going on for the longest time and everyone who become president in the White House was ignoring the problem didn't want to face the truth homeless people been around from 1920's theme for the back and what does the Senate do representative United States nothing they ignore it and once in a blue moon the sun me address the issue and then just sweep it under the rug so the homeless people are now on the sidewalk with a star's whatever that's that sidewalk so now they get like 2 minutes of fame and it just disappear what can American do about homeless people well first of all let's talk about the backs yes the ones who promised you a great loan for a fraction and then you end up paying big interest so what happened to these families they lose their home because of a lie and they draw you in because you can get a beautiful poem for this Mount off money and then Sun Lee everything hit rock bottom you end up in these shelters where it's not even safe for children who get hurt kill assault so what now no one is paying attention to finding a solution just like student loans Public School an affordable house it these are the issues is upon us every single time only once in a while they bring it up just to get attention so that you know that it have a Consciousness and awareness no it's not enough how do we solve this problem first of all this talk about fordable housing hoc is permanent open of course it is they don't have any money there's no opening for housing for anyone this is a solution to this problem no because you know what happened was you decided which is the Senate you represented give land to these real stayed who only interest is to make a profit they don't give a damn about fordable housing cuz they're not making money from it is all about making money for their self and every part of the United States wherever you go you find these expensive Condominiums townhouses this single family houses over $1000000 and let's talk about the bank who literally Mac there own loans for the customers and make it seem that is no problem nothing's going to happen and you're good lying to you because you do not read the fine print they tell you about the interest that you have to pay trusting them no don't do it so here is what is going on out of here is the the loans the real estate let's not forget about the jobs that people lose so once in a blue moon again I say this you find someone trying to figure it out let's give them some housing oh yeah that's fine how are they going to pay their bills I'll take care of what they need to do without a job you can't just give them a house or an apartment to live in it.. Most homeless people have issues and problems and I need to deal with their what is going on with them and you just cannot throw them into an apartment and everything is all the new you won't see him on the street no is more to it is about what they went through in their life we need to talk about it I need to find a solution that's the first thing so they didn't have the confidence to believe in yourself being homeless on the street sleeping underneath Bridges tents it can put a strain on your emotional you will not believe what it does to you physically and emotionally again we need to build better places it brings together what needs to be done so they can be prepared to go back into society and live their life how do we do this well first of all those Who want to improve to make their life better he needs to change the way you look at the problem. First of all you separate the family from the single person the mail going their own building the single females have their own resident like a college dormitory the families that live in apartments there's certain rules that they have to follow if you find them on the street begging no you cannot do that you put in this residency libraries jobs resource social workers who comes in for food stamps Psychiatry to help everyone was the solution especially with children because it is very hard for them you also have your own transportation to the kids go to school and parents also work on their solution and how they feel a handle what is going on in their life you have everything there a cafe a restaurant so they don't need to be on the street waiting to come back to see if they can get a place for them to sleep no no more they live there while they work on getting a better life for their family through the programs from schools colleges Workforce all-in-one building why the kids go to school and each person work with their own counseling there's a church also so they can go to so we know this is the beginning and somehow we find a way to complete so they can find affordable housing 94 the family was single people to what kind of budget so they can also live among the needs. And for the kids they have their own play area and Council to help them to what is going on in their family very important so that's one solution in my idea for Education this country needs to stop and being weird if you want a better education for United States you need to put more money into the budget for the teachers so they have better pay no one can leave them $43,000 a year finding a place to live under such salary is impossible so the government needs to put more money into the salaries for teachers XXX not a T3000 150000 year for teachers stop acting like you don't have any money to put into public schools and salaries for teachers no one can live on take care of their self and their family under $43,000 a year and also put money back in because school supplies is not available you need to walk the walk and do the right thing yes like Spike Lee said we love you Spike Lee let's talk about student loans 40000 to 50000 to $100,000 especially if you are going to be a doctor is more how can we solve this problem it's all I grant you know I remember when I did my research looking for money because I refuse to take out a loan and I found Grant and it needs to be more available to students where someone talks to them about how you can get a grant so you can go to school I remember seeing how much money is put into these Grant and no one is touching them there their they're available sitting there waiting for one person to apply and fill out the application. Affordable housing president Jimmy Carter after he left the White House started habitat where people can build the housing and you own it you don't have to pay any money put in the hours and when the house is finished it's yours is a wonderful idea cuz there's one problem it's not enough money because they need the funds to continue on this is one of the things I love about President Carter no one else comes up with anything better yet they're not even considering donated funds for this program to continue on can you imagine if he had five billion dollars to walk West Hollywood change everyone's life so here it is yet it's just being ignore no commitment to complete to achieve knee Solutions right in front of you is once in awhile when you want to run for your candidate and you want people to vote for you you bring up certain one of these issues and then after you get what you want you ignore everything else is like going around in circles and chasing your tail thank you all very much until next time finding America peace be with you

There are a number of studies that have shown that there are dangerous side effects to taking most supplements. They are incredibly simplistic compared to the form they come in natural food. I personally take two B12 pills a week since there is a chronic shortage of B12 in the modern world of antibiotics. Other than that, I stay far away from all that stuff. Just eat your fruits and veggies. Trust me, you'll be just fine

Only people with dietary and/or health issues need to be taking nutritional supplements. If you don't trust your own diet, talk to your doctor with your food diary to hand and they'll give you some advice. If you don't eat enough veg because you don't fancy eating them much of the time, just remember that your gut is a second brain and you can train yourself to like certain foods by eating more of them. If you're already in reasonable health, you can do simple things yo make yourself healthier without reaching for pills. And I know many of you may not be able to afford fresh fruit and veg, so let me tell you -- frozen fruit and veg is just as good, as long you cut down on cooking salt and don't overboil them.

"If you're a lab mouse with diabetes, you got off easy. Good luck getting any sympathy in the lab mouse support group. 'Oh, I'm sorry you can't have any candy. I've got an EAR GROWING OUT OF MY F***ING BACK! JEFF'S GOT HERPES! Sorry, Jeff.'" That joke would be hilarious enough on its own, just the way it's typed. But delivered in John Oliver's British accent, with the visual representation right over his shoulder? Beyond hilarity.

I think a solution would be to feed senators Hatch and Harkin the supplements they shill for and they can be the Canary in the coal mine and if they snuff it they're exposed to the same risk as the consumers affected by them.

Why the hell can't we approach regulations with common sense? Some people are pathologically opposed to regulations for no logical reason. But there are cases where the FDA or other regulations are a bit too much. But each case should be taken on its own.

Oz is a huge phony grifter. Do yourself a favor - avoid ALL like him: anybody from Oprah, Oprah herself - Goddess of fake medicine, "Dr" Phil, disgusting G Paltrow, etc... All frauds. Just listen to your doctor or do REAL medical research from legitimate sources. Never "mommy blog"s etc. Avoid chiropractors, osteopathy, naturists, acupuncture, TCM woo-woo also. D.A., J.D., NYC

I work in natural supplements and vitamins where we are required to emphasize that these things enhance health, not help conditions, and even years later ads online and things mentioned on television shows (including re-runs of Dr. Oz) get bought up in hordes by people. The presentation of anything on television is marketing; no doctor should be allowed to talk about any one product on television unless it's a congressional hearing about a drug's lawsuit issues!
