Doug Vining Toothpaste to kill malaria

Recently we published a MindBullet suggesting that, in the future, the machines would be better suited to scientific discoveries, because they can run many more research experiments than humans in a similar time frame. Well, a research robot in Britain has done exactly that, and discovered that an ingredient used in toothpaste can prevent drug-resistant strains of the malaria parasite from surviving. That is excellent news, as malaria is still a scourge here in Africa, with massive economic costs.

Here's a link to the article:

A FuturesForum post (titled: "Toothpaste to kill malaria") refers to this MindBullet. The full FuturesForum post can be read here:
