Nigella sativa -- more commonly known as fennel flower or black cumin -- has been used as a cure-all remedy for over a thousand years. It treats everything from vomiting to fevers to skin diseases, and has been widely available in impoverished communities across the Middle East and Asia.
But now Nestlé is claiming to own it, and filing patent claims around the world to try and take control over this natural cure and turn it into a costly private drug.

Oh I never knew nestle was interested in medicines and the use of herbs in their company. So if they file a patent for that then we will have to buy that from them? I wish they go back to the old days where they made chocolates instead of drugs.
