How Much Is Your Body Worth On the Black Market?

Organs and tissue are used for millions of transplants and medical products yearly. The traditional path for a transplant is a waitlist, but with thousands of people dying before they make it to the front of the line, some take matters into their own hands.

Every year 100,000+ people join the waiting list for heart, kidney or liver transplants. Half of them die while on the waitlist. Some resort to illicit means. Organ trade is illegal in every country except Iran. How much is your body worth on the black market?
