Caption: Chinese ant medicine. Worker examining part of a pill machine being used in the preparation of ant-based remedies in Chinese medicine. In the background, baked ants are being added to the pill machine. Ants have been used for food and medicine throughout China since ancient times. The claims made for ant-based remedies include pain relief, slowing of aging, and treating conditions such as asthma, chronic liver disease, and poor circulation. Preparations and remedies made from ants generate sales in China equivalent to around 100 million US dollars per year. Photographed in China.
