How’s this for a ghoulish proposition…putting organs on the market is a shocking practice that hopefully does not happen very often.
Making ends meet is difficult, but we’d never suggest selling your organs on the black market. I repeat, please don’t sell your greatest assets on the black market.
What’s nuts is that there have actually been cases of organ selling to get material possessions. For instance, in 2011, a Chinese boy sold his kidney for 20,000 yuan so he could buy an iPad. That would have been not much more than $3000 US dollars. Just because we have 2 kidneys does not mean these should be worth so little.
If you’re a smoker, you might want to quit so you don’t need a new pair of lungs. Of course, you might want to give up alcohol as well to keep a healthy liver.
