Artemisia in bacteria
Artemisia also seems to help against bacteria. There are first evidence of an effect, there are observations of anti-bacterial properties in gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. The data for leishmaniasis and African sleeping sickness, which are caused by protozoa, which do not play a role in europe, is slightly better. While one can explain how Artemisia works against malaria or cancer, it is still largely unknown which mechanisms are responsible for the antiviral and antibacterial effects of Artemisia. So far we cannot say why Artemisia works, but we can observe and scientifically state that it works!
