    Please consider signing this petition …

    Nigella sativa — more commonly known as fennel flower — 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 the natural cure of the fennel flower and turn it into a costly private drug.

    Hhhmmmm…. they obviously don’t want to “share” it too far. The facebook link came up as “javascript:void(0)” which means it’s not linked to facebook at all. In fact it’s not linked to anything.

    Signed and shared last week 🙂

    Even if the share link does come up javascript void, it still shares it on your facebook page 🙂

    Yeah, didn’t share on my f/b page at all. I put it over there by cutting & pasting the URL. But then, the BBCode editor won’t load for me either, even though I’ve got all permissions open for this page.

    Nestlé Chairman Peter Brabeck’s views are beyond belief.

    I intend to do more research on this man and Nestle. Thanks for posting this link Bron.

    I checked out Bron’s link, thanks Bron.

    :jawdrop:

    That’s it for me, no more ‘Nestle’ products in this household, that is if there are any! 👿 And I must remember to write and tell them that I will no longer buy their products and tell them why!!!
