Nestle trying to patent the natural fennel flower

NestleNatural News – by Lance Devon

In an interview with “We Feed the World,” Nestle CEO Peter Brabeck touted that his company is the largest foodstuff corporation in the world, worth $65 billion. He went on to proclaim that 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 the fennel flower. According to patent filings, Nestle is claiming ownership of nigella sativa, or fennel flower, 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.

Is corporate control of natural plants the answer?

Is this a good move by Nestle? Are they trying to make natural cures available to the masses? Are they motivated to help people worldwide? After all, Brabeck stated in an interview that the role of his company is to paint “a positive image of the world for people.”

“And I see absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t be positive about our future,” Brabeck said.

Is corporate control of a naturally occurring plant the answer, though? The fennel flower has been used for centuries to treat a wide array of ailments.

Better education about naturally occurring plants may be the better route. This will allow people everywhere to freely think for themselves and access natural cures on their own. Better education would awaken more people to grow or wild harvest naturally occurring plants as they share them with their communities.

Nestle’s intentions are rooted in control

Nestle’s intentions can be uncovered in their move to patent the fennel flower. By claiming ownership of the plant, they don’t want to empower the people with knowledge. They clearly want to control the people’s natural rights, their natural right to plant medicine.

With an approved patent on the fennel flower, Nestle would have the ability to sue anyone who grows or sells the plant and its extracts without first receiving permission from the Nestle Corporation.

Their controlling, dominate nature can also be seen in their attempts to drain out aquifers around the world, as they feed their billion-dollar bottled water industry. For example, in 2009, residents of Salida, Arkansas objected to Nestle’s proposal to draw out more than 65 million gallons of water from its aquifer.

Some common uses of the fennel flower

In a paper published in 2012, Nestle scientists say they “discovered” the healing powers of the nigella sativa plant. The fact is, their recent fennel flower discoveries are nothing new. Their findings are not a new, break-through science discovery. In fact fennel flower has been used throughout history and is used by many countries today. The herbal extract is scientifically proven to aid issues relating to kidney, liver, and respiratory disorders.

By claiming ownership, Nestle could gain control of the price and availability of a country’s fennel flower, thus hurting poor populations in Africa who depend on the plant. This could also make it illegal for herbalists to create and sell herbal extracts of the plant.

Nigella sativa is historically valuable and has been used for centuries. Its black seed oil supports the health of populations in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The seeds and the oil from the plant are used as nutritional supplements. The seed’s antiseptic properties treat intestinal worms. When used externally, the oil treats abscesses and hemorrhoids. The herb was used by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. The seeds were even found by in ancient Egyptian tombs.

Speaking out

The plant is best left unadulterated, uncontrolled, and freely available to the world. Online petitions are available for those who disagree with Nestle’s control of a natural plant. The petition is seeking 225,000 signatures and has nearly reached its goal.

    You can’t patent something you didn’t invent. God holds the patent on this one.

  2. Leita says:

    Nestle – keep your greedy corp bloody claws off of nature and while
    your at it, quit stealing water from the Great Lakes. Parasites.

  3. RT Hawk says:

    What a seholes!
    Another reason I am boycotting them.
    My boycott list just keeps growing and growing and………

  4. Wolf says:

    They are on the gmo list along with hershey’s. Fyi, when the 3 mile Island Nuke plant melted down, Hershey’s which is close by did not allow health inspectors in to check on any radiation exposure. So, more than likely they are nuked. And, Hershey’s is on the gmo list.
    All the more reason to NOT BUY from these whores.
    Their commercials are obsolete.

    Why is this being called “fennel” or “fennel flower”? Nigella sativa is black cumin; fennel is Foeniculum vulgare.

  6. Jean says:

    More targets for the revolution. :-P

  7. Fitzwater says:

    Nestle and ‘preserving water’…. LOL!

    Kids can that laugh at such a notion as they are taught about the ‘water cycle’ in school. If you can cloud seed to get water then the opposite is true as well.

    PS. There is a documentary about called “The Dust Bowl”. It preaches that water will run out because of farmers and farming. I am sure we all can see where that is going. Never let a crisis go to waste to push an agenda.
