HOW MUCH ARE YOUR BODY PARTS WORTH ON THE BLACK MARKET? [NEAT]

Ever been SO desperate for cash that you’ve thought about selling a kidney on the black market?  This might make you want to.  Even though you REALLY SHOULDN’T. A website compiled info from FBI and other government reports on how much different body parts have sold for on the black market.  And the going rate for a kidney in the U.S. is $262,000.  Here’s more on what your body is worth . . .

CHECK OUT THE AUDIO FROM TODAY’S THAT SUCKS UPDATE AND HOW MUCH YOU CAN GET FOR YOUR ORGANS?

-Kidney, $262,000 in the U.S., $62,000 in China, $15,000 in India.

–Liver, $157,000.

–Heart, $119,000.

–Small intestine, $2,519.

–Pair of eyeballs, $1,525.

–Coronary artery, $1,525.

–Gallbladder, $1,219.

–Skull with teeth, $1,200.

–Scalp, $607.

–Spleen, $508.

–Stomach, $508.

–Hand and forearm, $385.

–Pint of blood, $337 in the U.S., just $25 in India.

–Skin, $10 per square inch.

That means, when you die, your body could be harvested for $810,381, not counting your blood or skin, which varies by size.  But your skin could get you another $30,000 or so, and your blood could add on around $3,370. And here’s WHY there’s a black market.  In the U.S., there are about 113,100 people currently waiting for an organ transplant . . . and there were 14,144 organs donated in 2011.  Eighteen people die every day WAITING for a transplant. We don’t exactly know how you’d go about selling your organs on the black market . . . and even though the money’s good, we wouldn’t recommend finding out.  It’s an ENORMOUS RISK in so many ways.
