Higgs vacuum stability has important consequences for cosmology. In particular, we argue that if the Higgs vacuum is metastable, then the dark matter cannot contain a single black hole of mass less than 10^15gin our entire past light cone. In addition to being the destroyer microscopic black holes, it may be possible that Higgs vacuum decay is a source of primordial black holes during inflation.
