Scientists have discovered gold in the body of a cow.
In addition to gold in the urine of cows found 388 substances possessing valuable medical properties.
After four years of research, scientists from Agricultural University, Junagadh (India) managed to detect gold in the urine of the gir cows.
Biologists examined 400 samples of urine by a combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. The concentration of gold was from three to ten milligrams per liter of fluid. However, precious metal was in there ion state (in the form of salts) — removing it by electrolysis, scientists believe.
In addition, in the laboratory, examined the urine of buffaloes, camels, sheep and goats, but no precious metals in it are not found. When this urine of cows, besides gold, found 388 substances possessing valuable medical properties.
“Until recently, we knew about the gold in the urine of the cow and its medical properties only of the ancient texts. Science this question was not engaged, and so we decided to conduct a study,” — said the head of the research team, Galacia Balu (Balu Golakia).
