See What Some Human Organs And Parts Are Worth In The Black Market (Photos)

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 take the risk of imprisonment, that is.

Due to the difficulty of making it to the top of the applicable organ transplant list in time, it is estimated that over 10% of all organs and tissue used in surgeries come from the Black Market.

Kidneys are by far the most popular organ on the Black Market.

In fact, a staggering 75% of the Black Market organ trade involves the sale of kidneys.

Therefore, it's not surprising that they're also one of the most expensive things to illegally purchase. At approximately $200,000, most people who need a kidney transplant due to medical issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes won't be able to afford it.

Sadly, less than a third of US patients on the kidney waitlist will get a legal opportunity to save their lives. Something worth noting is that the cost of these organs is much lower in China and India, where they range from $15,000 to $62,000.
