Buddy Loans Infographic

No price can be put on a life. But whether we like it or not, once a person has died, there is value to the human body as a commodity. And different parts of our body are worth different amounts—while corneas are small, they fetch a large price (£15,000, or about $22,450), whereas our skeleton garners significantly less (£5,000, about $7,483). The price also depends on whether the body part is sold for specimen use, transplants, or on the black market. 

Check out the slightly macabre, but highly interesting, infographic by Buddy Loans below.
