Black Market organ prices might surprise you. That's because some body parts are worth an astounding amount of money while others fetch a much lower price than you'd probably guess. If you've read the true stories of people whose organs were stolen, you know that organs aren't the only human parts that are in demand. Everything from hair to skin has a price and is available without waiting on a donor list - as long as you're willing to break the law and risk imprisonment and medical complications.
Due to the difficulty of making it to the top of the applicable organ transplant list in time, some organs used in surgeries come from the Black Market, or what the World Health Organization calls the "international organ trade" via "transplant tourism" or even human trafficking. This happens despite the fact that Iran is the only nation where it is actually legal to buy, sell, and trade organs. Sadly, many people feel like they have no choice other than to turn to the Black Market because their need is so great. In the United States, approximately 20 people die each day while waiting for an organ that is unavailable.
