Guinea pigs Rule: Why is a water white

Thunder Hunter: #showusyourpeanuts

Admirerofthestrange2: As someone addicted to sugar... Yeah, it's pretty shitty not knowing just how much I'm destroying myself until it's too late. I mean I don't think I'll ever get rid of my sweet tooth (don't have nearly enough willpower) but even I know that those companies saying "it's good for you" are fucking bullshitting. How stupid do they think we are?

The Green Miscarriager of Arkansasian Prisons: that ending was the most innuendo-laden thing i've heard short of john's mother's sexy talk to me

Felix L.: gramm is too complicated for every country in the world only every country exept for america and maby 3 more does understand it

Hihams: I got scared for a second because my name is Kevin and I did kill the class hamster by accident :(.

David Greene: My only complaint is that John Oliver should have specified that the issue is with added sugars and refined sugars, not sugars itself. The sheer number of nutritionally illiterate people who believe that sugar itself is the problem is arguably just as bad as the number of people who don't know about the danger of high added sugar intake.

Syogren: "Sexy John Oliver"
Okay I think that's maybe a little redundant, don'tcha think?

Kil roy: Well to be honest, anyone who actually works in a math or science related field in America uses the metric system. The fact that the English system is still taught in schools as the standard is simply an artifact of the American public being very resistant to change that isn't a hot button topic...

Andri Hasani: sexual innuendos galore at the end😂😂😂

Niobesnuppa: Honestly, the American food industry is pretty worrisome, because it seems like only the super expencive stuff is actually even close to the standards of European food, everything else is full of sugar and chemicals. Bread, meat, salads, dressings, none of that stuff needs sugar in them. Granted I've never been to the US myself, but I know several people who have, and they all say that regular American bread that's not super expencive tastes like cake to us, because it's got so much syrup in it it's ridiculous. And don't even get me started on the fact that they're putting arsenic in the chicken to make the chicken pink instead of white, because apparently the companies that sell this shit think raw-looking poisonous chicken is more appetising than normal healthy chicken. Americans, I feel so sorry for you, you guys deserve much better than this.

Jonatan Rydén: haha "nobody understands the metric system" because multiplying by 10, or just addin 0's to a 1, is much more complicated than what youre doing in the states.

Cyrus565: 5:55 he's the 1 dentist in the group of 10 that doesn't approve of Colgate.

Ash J: Can someone please explain to me want Circus Peanuts are?

twilliamsca: The problem with this article is most of what Americans call sugar is actually high fructose corn syrup, and it's been that way since the late 1980's I believe. Every other country I know of, besides Canada, has given up high fructose corn syrup and went back to regular sugar. Why aren't we talking about this?

sanket jadhav: watch the video sonal

dietotaku: But... Sexy John Oliver is already just... John Oliver...

MyCountryIsLost: The FDA? Really? People actually listen to or give a fuck about what the FDA says? They're the cocksuckers that are responsible for making and keeping GMO's legal. If it's a government organization, you can bet your ass the information they put out is skewed, categorically false and/or influenced in some way by corporate greed and money coming from someone. The whole god damn thing is corrupt.

23ebrandt: At first i thought circus peanuts were gum

Atlas: I'm watching this while drinking sweet tea / iced tea / whatever the fuck u call cold nice sweet tea
