« on: March 06, 2013, 10:56:34 AM »

If you were ever curious as to how much body parts can fetch on the black market, Medical Transcription created a snazzy infographic to show you. Some parts are shockingly cheap! Like would you want a new shoulder or a new iPad? Both cost 500 bucks.

Other organs are prohibitively expensive, like a kidney. That little sucker costs $262,000 in the US (other countries have it for cheaper)! Here's the full list of body parts and their cost:

    Pair of Eyeballs: $1,525
    Scalp: $607
    Skull with Teeth: $1,200
    Shoulder: $500
    Coronary Artery: $1,525
    Heart: $119,000
    Liver: $157,000
    Hand and Forearm: $385
    Pint of Blood: $337
    Spleen: $508
    Stomach: $508
