    You could quite literally be wasting a fortune every time you go to the toilet after scientists discovered gold in human faeces.
    Brave boffins have revealed that our poo also contains other valuable minerals such as silver, and rare elements including palladium and vanadium.
    According to the US researchers, sewage sludge contains levels of gold, silver and platinum that, if found in rocks, would be seen as ‘commercially viable’ for prospectors.
    The scientists made the bizarre discovery when studying waste from American sewage treatment plants.
