    So how much are your body parts worth?

    With the talk about trading kidneys for HPF M3's I decided to do a little research:

    How much is a human body worth? When broken down into fluids, tissues and germ fighting our bodies are worth more than $45 million.

    This price tag on the human body is based on a survey published in Wired magazine. It found that vital organs are no longer the most valuable body parts. Rather, bone marrow heads the list…priced at $23 million, based on 1,000 grams at $23,000 per gram.
    DNA can fetch $9.7 million, while extracting antibodies can bring $7.3 million. A lung is worth $116,400, a kidney $91,400 and a heart $57,000.

    Women's eggs are costlier than men's sperm. The survey found that a fertile woman could sell 32 egg cells over eight years for $224,000; however, for a man to earn the same amount, he would have to make 12 sperm donations a month for 20 years.

    The prices are based on cost estimates taken from hospitals and insurance companies, and are based on projected prices only in the United States. Of course, the prices also assume that all these substances can be extracted from living tissue for sale.

    Although this break down is illegal, unethical and also impossible, you should not feel like a million dollars any more. You can feel like $45 million, instead!
    There you have it, Kidney for an HPF car is a great deal for the HPF owner. Flip the kidney on the black market and buy your car back and pocket the change.

    not a bad plan, however, he did stipulate that it was a "lightly used" kidney. but then again, which organs are not used? lol only ones that are grown for biomedical use i suppose. stem-cells anyone?

    yeah lol. it makes you wonder. those people that have the bracelets that allow their body to be used to help others in case of death. do you think they extract each item listed in the OP to gain every ounce of bodily mass and money possible? or are only organs used? man the hospital must make a killing with those people lol no pun intended.

    Idiots, giving their body party away to keep some wealthy person who is at the top of the organ donation list alive for a few more years.

    Considering how much those body parts are worth, the family should be compensated as who knows how the distribution is decided or where they go.

    I think you should keep your marrow:

    The donation process begins with the donor coming into the hospital early in the morning on the day of the donation procedure. An anesthesiologist administers anesthesia to help manage the pain from the donation process. Seventy-five percent of the time the donor receives general anesthesia. The alternative is local anesthesia, which allows the donor to remain conscious and has a lower risk of complications. Depending on the hospital's policy, the donor will either be able to leave in the late afternoon or will be kept overnight (the latter is more common if general anesthesia is used).

    My cousin had a bone marrow sample taken last year. He said it hurt so much he would never forget the pain. He almost passed out.

    Read this:

    The bone marrow donation operation begins with the patient lying face down on the table. The surgeon(s) makes between one and four small cuts (less than a quarter of an inch long) over the pelvic bone. Next, the surgeon inserts a hollow needle with a syringe at the end into the pelvic bone. This syringe uses suction to remove a small amount of bone marrow. Finally, surgeons remove the needle and bandage the wounds, which are small enough they do not require stitches.
    No health issues from what I can see but please tell me you don't need money that badly.

    Well, I've been in a bike wreck, took out my knee all the way to the knee-cap, tore up my ass and fingers and right arm, they had to rub alcohol all over and cut/pull pieces of glass and rock and stuff out, hurt REALLY bad.

    Before they sowed my knee up they poked my bone a bit with the numbing needle, it did hurt pretty damn bad. I was already on the gas too, didn't help.

    $23,000 for a GRAM! How much do they pull per operation?

    .
    My sister is currently at the TIP TOP of the transplant list waiting for new lungs while she mercilessly is attached to an oxygen tank cause her lungs have more or less failed her (CF). At 28 years old and piss poor, her life expectancy would improve by way more than a few years with a new set of breathers installed.
