Hi Friends!

I have chanced upon an interesting news item which I am going to share with you. Heard about Plumpy'nut? It is known as a wonder food to fight malnutrition which is a curse afflicting several parts of Africa and other developing countries. It is a blend of peanut butter, powdered milk,sugar and vegetable oil fortified with vitamins and minerals.Nutriset - a French company is the maker of this 'Ready-to-use-therapeutic food' which is seeking a patent for this and this has been legally challeged in an American court by some who maintain patenting this would mean denial of this life-saving stuff at an affordable cost to millions of under and malnourished children in the developing world. What are your thoughts on this?
