    Thank you Alan, that's very reassuring. I guess I can just have some soda water with a bit of lemon juice in it.
    Thank you again, I am feeling quite relieved.

    Just want to bump kellieem's question... cos I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing.... what is quinine anyway and why is it bad?? If it's bad, why is it in our drinks?

    Quinine is used in medicine to help prevent cramps. It used to be used and occasionally still is to treat malaria. In drinks it is used to enhance the bitter flavour.
