A lot of articles in Internet show that the Tonic water is good to prevent ‘Malaria’, as the Tonic water contains ‘quinine’, as if you don’t over take the Tonic water sometime is good for our health. You may not know that the Malaria cases already more than 300 million, and kill more than 1 million of people.

There are getting more people infected by Malaria in many counties and create a public health problem today, and especially big country like United State. I believe the US Congress will work with a lot of US healthcare organization or insurance company to provide the related health services to help those people, example like Tonic Health Insurance.


What is Malaria?

Malaria is a vector-born infectious disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus plasmodium. You can refer to this Wikipedia link to know more about Malaria.


What is Tonic Water?

Tonic water is a carbonated beverage and contain the ‘quinine’, and usually people like to mix it with lemon or lime. If you like the highball cocktail, then you will know it made with gin and tonic water, and even mix with vodka to make it more smooth and great taste.


So, time to time if you can drink Tonic water, then it can help our health too! But, DON’T over drink it, like everyday for few bottles or cans! :)
