Did You Know That There Is Natural Gold & Silver In Your Blood?:poke:

I have been a Registered Nurse for many years (hope to retire soon) and have in my career given intramuscular gold injections to people on at least 2 occasions. It is successfuly used for certain indiviuals with wvery inflamed joints such as knees, hips and shoulders. I must admit, I really do love gold......I have injected it, found it in water and land and even prospect for it.

Here's an exert from an article on gold in our blood:

You might be surprised to learn that gold in the human body exists naturally. Right from the moment of birth.

For example, a 70-kg person has about 0.2 mg of gold, which is equivalent to 0.000000003% of their body weight. If you do the math, 5000 humans, in total, have about 1 g of gold. Not a lot.

Like majority of other trace elements, most of this gold is found in your blood. More than anywhere else though, it is concentrated in the regions around your heart.

Gold specks in your body are not there by coincidence. They have a purpose. Specifically, they are responsible for transduction of electrical signals across your organs, muscles and other tissues. Plus they maintain and keep your joints strong and flexible.

On the interesting note, the same-weighting human has 10 times as more silver in his body. Yeah, silver is floating inside you as well. Didn’t you know that you are a walking mine? Too bad the amounts are tiny.

I bet, if gold and silver occurred in larger quantities (like potassium and sulfur), many would try to extract these precious metals from their blood!

And then articles like “amazing benefits of bloodletting” would start popping up in Internet to justify this self-mutilation! I don’t mean to say that bloodletting has no scientific basis. It actually does. It’s just that humans tend to color dark things they love with white paint to lower the self-guilt. There are articles on the health benefits of smoking, believe it or not… But I am getting off the topic here."

I've never heard of this . Interesting . I wonder if the embalmers know of this ? Not sure how you would extract that small amount from blood tho .

How about all the blood from cows, pigs and chickens?
And seawater?
According to the National Ocean Service, our oceans hold some 20 million pounds of gold, suspended in normal seawater. But this gold is spread throughout the normal mineral content of seawater to the tune of “parts per trillion.” As the NOAA puts it, “Each liter of seawater contains, on average, about 13 billionths of a gram of gold.” There are also gold deposits within the seafloor, but profitably mining them is far beyond our current abilities.
(There has to have been some crazy scams fleecing investors to "extract" it.) :punch:

Maybe this explains why our detectors get EMI interference, it's actually coming from our blood?
