I think this is a question we’ve all been wondering about.
Did you know that organ trade is illegal in every country except Iran?
BODY PARTS THE LIVING CAN SELL
$337 per pint of blood.
$70 for ten inches of hair.
Men’s hair is reduced to an amino acid used in baking goods.
Women’s hair is turned into wigs and weaves.
Bone Marrow
The most valuable part of your body sells for a high of $23,000 per gram. You can donate bone marrow, but it’s illegal to sell it.
Eggs: $12,400 per IVF cycle in U.S.
Egg donation is legal, but some choose to avoid hospital fees and buy eggs illegally or abroad.
Surrogate Wombs: $20,000-30,000 in India, $80,000-150,000 in the U.S.
Kidneys
Make up 75% of the global organ trade due to diabetes, high blood pressure and heart problems.
Theoretically, your body is worth up to $45 million dollars (But that’s only if you could harvest every usable chemical and part from it.)
FROM THE DEAD
Corneas: $24,400 implanted
Hearts: Legal–$997,700, Illegal– $119,000
Livers: Legal–$557,100, Illegal–$157,100
Kidneys–From U.S. $262,900
China–$62,000
India–$15,000
Ligaments and Bones– A few thousand dollars, depending on which one.
Skin–$10 per square inch
Skeletons–$2,993-5,500
SOURCES OF BODY PARTS
Legal:
Donated by Family, Friends
Charities, non-profits
Illegal: 
Looted Graves
Crooked morticians
Paid donors (often very poor)
Executed prisoners
Live prisoners
Blood Farms

In case any of you think you’re useless

So creeped out.
