Gold Anyone?

Apparently gold isn't just for jewelery nowadays. It is edible. A company in Japan (only in Japan!) called Tsukioka Co. Ltd. sells edible gold flakes, which comes in many shapes and sizes. The company claims that by ingesting the edible pure gold, it helps to refresh the human body. How beneficial is this? I am not to very sure. Who comes up with this stuff? I know that gold is used on edible candy for weddings, cakes and special occasions. But actually beneficial? I do not know about that. Can the human body even digest it?

You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
