The other 4% is composed of a large range of different elements. In fact, the human body contains trace amounts of elements, such as nickel, silicon, uranium, and even mercury and arsenic. The human body contains gold as well. A person weighing about 150 pounds will contain 0.2 milligrams of gold in their body. This gold's volume and purified form would equal 10 nanoliters.
