Caption: Yanomami man inhaling curare, Brazil. The Yanomami are a group of roughly 20,000 indigenous people who live in the Amazon rainforest between Venezuela and Brazil. Curare is a muscle-relaxant drug of botanical origin. In a crude form, it is traditionally used to make poison arrows, but the vapours are not poisonous.
