Cumin vs. "Black Cumin"

In case some of you folks subscribe to the Mercola health newsletter often rife with inaccuracies, please know that in today's issue he again confuses unrelated plants yet promotes them. Nigella (aka "black cumin" ) is not cumin at all, not even related. You can buy Black Cumin seeds in an Indian market, but it has ZERO cumin taste as it is not cumin. I am dismayed at the money he makes while dispensing so much MISinformation.....guess he's never heard of Googling. Black cumin is closely related to a lovely flower I grew as a summer annual in my Denver flower gardens, "Love in a Mist". John
