You might think of gold as a premier store of wealth. Something folks lock away in vaults for years at a time. However, it may surprise you to know gold is medicine too.
Gold is widely used in modern medicine to treat different types of cancer. Radioactive gold isotope particles are set in tissues and used as a source of radiation, killing nearby cancer cells. But that’s not all.
A mix of gold and glucose injections are often used to help folks deal with rheumatoid arthritis too. Gold is even a vital component in many life-support devices and medical diagnosis machines.

Longtime followers may remember a company we discussed a while back named Opko Health (NASDAQ: OPK).
Opko is the creation of Dr. Phillip Frost. Frost is one of the all-time great biotech investors — he’s like the Warren Buffett of pharma and biotech. His golden touch has landed him on the Forbes list of wealthiest billionaires.
So when I sat across from Dr. Frost in his office one Miami afternoon and heard him tell me about how his recent acquisition was going to change the world… I listened hard.
And when he reached into his suit pocket, my interest piqued. He didn’t pull out a gold coin. He pulled out the gold-enabled future of the medical diagnostic industry.
I sat slightly baffled until he explained…
In his hand he held a revolutionary medical diagnosis device. One that used gold and silver microfluidics to test tiny droplets of blood for diseases.
The technology in his hand was a game changer in the medical diagnosis sector and it dawned on me that there could be a lot more to this gold story.
And there could be some great biotech-related opportunities waiting to be discovered like that next huge vein of yellow metal somewhere deep in the Earth’s crust.

As medical science discovers more lifesaving uses for gold you can bet the price of the yellow stuff will skyrocket.
My friend and gold expert Mike Burnick notes the exciting scenario we’re looking at for gold in 2019.
As you can see in the chart below, gold recently achieved a “golden cross.” This is when the 50-day price moving average crosses above the longer-term 200-day average and typically means a price surge is coming.
Gold’s rally is just getting started, and a 20% gain from here in the next six–12 months seems very likely.
This puts us at a price target of roughly $1,548 for the yellow stuff at the very least!
