Our bodies contain about 0.2 milligrams of gold, most of it in our blood

Everyone comes into the world with a bit of gold to their name. Our bodies contain about 0.2 mg of gold. Most of that gold is diffused with our blood. However, you’d need to bleed 40,000 people dry just to collect enough blood to make one 8g sovereign.

Gold even found in plants like Douglas fir and honeysuckle absorb it very efficiently from the soil. However, the amount of money needed to extract that gold just wouldn’t be worth it.

The most abundant gold mine on the planet is the sea where there are 10 million tons of the shinny stuff just floating around.
