Did you know...

Did you know that Tonic Water contains quinine and was used as treatment decades ago for malaria, but the taste became so popular that people drink it for leisure? If you want to learn more about quinine and other antimalarial compounds read the article by Rocha e Silva et. al., called "In vitro susceptibility of Plasmodium falciparum Welch field isolates to infusions prepared from Artemisia annua L. cultivated in the Brazilian Amazon" published in the vol. 107 no. 7 of Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, where the authors describe 3 antimalarial compounds: chloroquine, quinine and artemisinin.
