The blonde gets blonder

Instead of taking 500 mg of chloroquine phosphate per week to prevent malaria, a 16 year old blonde took the dosage daily during a holiday in Costa Rica. One week after her holiday her hair turned even paler.

I wonder if any brain cells died in the process.

Reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.
