Default Poison in Gold

What chemist or reasonable scientifically trained non-chemist on this
newsgroup was going to feed their baby some gold? The question as asked is
enough evidence of potential quackery so that any well meaning chemist
should discourage such action.

If this is your response to my asking for *any* statistic backing up your
viewpoint, I rest my case.

Like Repeating Decimal answered, I also was more concerned that the
guy/girl was planning to feed gold to the infant if he can be sure
that there is no arsenic than whether gold has arsenic or not.

Though, I gree with you that people should not be scared away by being
told that "you shouldn't be doing this if you ask this kind of
question", in this particular case, I personanly feel that the person
who is planning to feed gold to an infact really need to be deterred
and hence, the response was not really out of line to make sure that
the person gets the message.

That is what I did. My advice was to understand the risk from the herbs.
Too many people truly believe that natural substances are safe. Rattlesnake
venom is not safe. Some herbal medicines have been pulled off the market
because they have killed people. In fact, some contain substances that FDA
would does allow to be sold in over the counter drugs, but FDA has limited
authority over herbal medicines. Infants are much more sensitive to many
poisons than are adults.

Uh, no, if a parent makes an ill-advised decision about medical treatment
for their child, and that child dies, that parent is guilty of murdering
their child. Period. Parents do not have absolute right to decide what is
best for their children...and therein lay the wisdom of trying to discourage
this fellow from potentially removing his child from the gene pool.

Dear Peter,
Everyone has missed the point. This is a medicine being given to a small child.
We are not talking about practicing chem but MEDICINE.
And GOLD is a heavy metal and it should not be given to a small child.

Penny

Gold is often contaminated with other heavy metals too.
