In the face of a specific declaration by law of a policy to acquire stock piles of strategic and critical minerals, I am inclined to doubt that this bill could be interpreted as an upsetting of that policy, but I think the bill ought to be clear that it does not upset that policy.

There are also a number of cases where the billing was deemed fraudulent, even though the line-item charges appear to be usual.

It is not surprising then that insurance should have become so prevalent and pernicious a mode of gaming, that the legislature was obliged to repress it, and to confine it within those limits, within which it is beneficial or absolutely necessary to the security of commerce.

  • Thank you so much for sharing, Dr. Greger! + NutritionFacts.org I would like to give a most sincere request for a topic I am hoping you would choose to cover in the future, (as you have suggested to leave questions on videos or blog posts). Specifically, I am wondering about recovery from a severe eating disorder, including severe anorexia of many years while on a vegan diet. (I am aware that this is possible, and can be healthily), but I would be most grateful to hear you address this topic in more detail.* If you choose to cover this topic, could you if possible address concerns about adequate phosphorus, and adequate protein while recovering on a plant based diet. Also if possible, could you address concerns that the consumption of only plant based foods would supply the body with “more fiber than is optimal for recovery.” I would also be most grateful if you could cover the impact of the consumption of animal based foods on cardiovascular, and bone health of severely underweight individuals who are in this situation.

    My apologies to ask so much here!

  • what about baking a what is “the healthiest container” or safest video. Covering the different tradeoffs of the ones we can choose from.
    I know that stainless steel turns the first dry peal of a red onion a greenish color, if it is left there overnight in water. So there must be something going on in at least the one I have:-)

  • And I was denied health insurance today because I didn’t enroll between November and January so I’m stuck until this november. My biggest fear is to hit the hospital and be stuck with a 20k bill I can’t afford it ever probably afford

  • It was said years ago in france by the specialists who revealed the toxicity of BPA. Days after a BPA free label was anounced, the info about it not solving anything did spread in some alternative medias.

  • So we are all just fucked? I mean dam I need to meal preb my food! I work out…. no time to cook all day and I hate cooking! I’m googling stainlesssteel containers but nobody makes them ( atleast the way I need them
    ) airtight and atleast 2l…. I’m getting stainless steel water bottle…. is it ok to reuse bpa free containers:(?

  • Once u make a playment plan they can’t sue for the rest. Next counter sue for stress. Milk them I will cost them way morw than that.

  • sue hospital for substandard service went.to general hospital in los Ángeles was having problem with hand saw first one nurse to registar then nurse who took weight and checked eyes waited saw a second nurse 2 hrs later again checked weight and temp then had forms for me to fill said they would bill me on a scale…according to what i madee again went to wait three more hrs then left..recieved a bill two weeks later 1200$…went back to complain said i couldnt pay that they asked what can you afford the settled for one hundred dollars..
    that rwelve hundred would have been my take home for a month..

  • Try to work with patients is a bold face lie,that is why they respond with statements instead of responding on camera.because they do not want to be caught in a bold-faced lie.

  • With Jon Goven your Credit Report will be fixed without no traces and get your desired result for you. He gave me an excellent score and He helped me to accomplish my goals by getting rid of my negative items off my credit report, paid off my outstanding medical bills within 4 days. Trust me he’s truly the best. Get more info via ([email protected])

  • so what to do if the only alternative for u(s) is to buy plastic water bottles from the store (with no car to carry glas water bottles is…kinda difficult if u buy a lot of other stuff)

    i used to have a water distiller but its pretty tedious work to use ONE for a whole family (if everyone drinks 2++ liters)

    usual waterfilters dont get rid of bpa and pals

    so…what to do?

  • My mom had the same problem. Her appendix exploded but the surgery was free with our insurance, well, public Mexican healthcare for workers insurance. Wtf is going on with USA?! Guys you should be rioting or something, this is unfair.

  • What if a hospital charges you without your consent? I even complained to the hospital and they said it was procedure. I don’t believe it i brought to a hospital in cuffs for no reason. And the police never had a petition and the hospital did all these procedures and sent me bills but i refuse to pay Spectrum Health. And after i was assigned a lawyer and ever time i called him the phone made a loud tone and never rung. I still want to sue the hospital and the Grand Rapids police.

  • Not a fan of the editing format of this video. Too many awkward pauses in the audio, and unnecessary movement of the documents. Good content but the editing was too distracting IMO.

  • What about Tritan or other BPA or BPA-Free Blenders and Food Processors? Is it safe to just process the food in there and pour it out immediately?

  • My favorite Tomato Sauce comes in a glass reusable mason jar with a metal lid with some kind of plastic coating on it, but the sauce doesn’t touch the lid, well hopefully anyway. I often use them for my coffee as many reusable coffee cups change the taste of my coffee.

  • If they can fine small businesses for price gouging (taking advantage of emergencies and crisis), then they can fine hospitals for price gouging… period. Too many politicians who have shares in the medical industry. Both parties are guilty of not fixing this.

  • You see how the hospital said the bill is $51,000 with insurance

    $31,000 no insurance

    That’s BS. Hospitals always over changing with insurance. I guess that’s to make up for the dead beats who dont pay

    So yeah they got thier money with someone who has insurance but still comming after you to hurry up and pay

  • tritan is “BPA free” but they can’t use that name because of trademark. So I can assume that tritan is pretty save because the guy who tied to forbid tritan was the guy who takes profits from BPA free procucts that are less safe than tritan itself. It’s all about money.

  • The fact that the hospital can negotiate with Medicare for a payment of $5000 while they are charging an uninsured patient $36,000 for the same procedure is proof positive that the procedure really doesn’t cost that much. This is a straight rip off!!!

  • Heath insurance should be i premium for all people a set price this is so wrong this is not human rights its abuse for all rich and poor no wonder why people die on the streets and are so physically mentally unhealthy hospitals are just reaping the benefits at amazingly high profits shameful shameless

  • So CBS couldn’t help the couple by paying of a portion or paying a doctor to examine that lady’s lump for payment to the interview???

  • Bernie Sanders has run for president twice now vowing to shut down this system and make sure everyone gets life saving medical care without these inflated costs. Instead the democrats backed Clinton in 2016, who lost to a reality TV star and real estate mogul. The first two years of Trump’s presidency saw the republicans controlling all branches of government with no democrats to shut down their bills, and they still couldn’t pass any meaningful healthcare plan. Apparently helping the majority of Americans get access to medicine wasn’t a priority. Now the DNC is blocking Bernie again in favor of Biden, and we will have 4 more years of this healthcare disaster. It’s hard not to believe we are a garbage country when we pick garbage leaders, but this is apparently what we deserve until we do better.

  • watch NF video -> open the studies -> open the studies cited in the studies -> 3 hours suddenly gone
