Nestle Seeks to Patent the Medicinal Properties of Nigella Sativa
This is not only the biggest farce in the world, this is most likely a ploy backed by the pharmaceutical giants to monopolize the world. Here is what the CEO Peter Brabeck touted: "Water is not a human right and that corporations such as his should control water to preserve it for future generations"
In addition to controlling naturally occurring water, Nestle is also striving to monopolize and control a naturally available plant called Nigella Sativa. According to patent filings, Nestle is claiming ownership of nigella sativa, for "nutritional interventions in humans with food allergy."
The corporate spokesperson for Nestle wrote to Business Standard that the patent application was filed at the European Patent Office in the US, Japan, and China. "It claims the use of an opioid receptor stimulating compound for the preparation of a composition to treat or prevent food allergy," he said.
