A Heart of Gold Isn’t Just an Expression Anymore

Scientists at MIT and Harvard have discovered tissue building gold studs that create a synchronized heart beat for survivors of heart attacks. The scaffolds made of gold are intertwined with the tissue cells and stimulate the growth of cardiac cells.

Alginate is fused with the gold nanowires and they act as superb conductors for the heart. When compared to natural cell growth, the gold fused cells grew thicker and straighter. With electricity, they all pulsed in unity.

Now, one day you may sell your gold necklace—but we’re pretty confident the gold in your heart is there to stay.
