    Well....it turns out that drinking coffee depletes your body of GOLD....a vital trace element. I don't know what gold actually does for you, but I guess you need it. I am chagrined to report that my body is probably entirely gold-free.

    I wonder where I can get gold supplements so I can continue drinking coffee without being deprived of whatever it is I'm deprived of. :(

    0.2 milligrams will replenish your bodily gold account.
    Not that there is any known function for aurum in a human...

    Who says gold is a vital element? That would be news to this biochemist.

    Insure you are not vitamin D or magnesium deficient.
    Those two are affected by diet and lifestyle and are very important in remaining healthy and disease free.
    Gold?
    Acapulco maybe, but not elemental.

    Gold can't be vital for humans purely on the basis that it is unreactive.

    The pedlars of junk medicine at exorbitant prices say so.
    It's bound to be an essential dietary supplement for audiofools :).

    Sure you can ask neighbours where to rush for gold. You live near the place after all. Kits being sold for panning.

    What "trace" means in this context?

    Forget it; whatever gold you regain is just going to be confiscated by the IRS anyway. Drink more coffee!!

    But the doctor is hooked on drugs.
    And the coffee is picked by child labor
    And the gold is missing from Fort Knox .

    You got problems my man.

    Excuse me? ... gold just so happens to be indispensable for human reproduction purposes, just ask your wife ... no gold ring? no kids!
