This episode is supported by Hims Your body is cool and all, but have you ever wondered how much is it all worth? Let’s start with selling your body one piece at a time. Sperm? You can make $35 to $135 a shot, with some banks paying donors $1500 for a one-year commitment, the criteria being you are healthy, tall, young, and educated. The price for an egg, however, is much greater at $10 000 and is likely due to the more invasive 20-minute procedure to retrieve eggs that can put you at a risk of infection or even endometriosis. The protein rich part of your blood aka plasma can be worth $50 However some of the wealthy and aging among us are paying $8 000 a session to be infused with young blood. Though evidence is in its early stages, the “fountain of youth”/”young blood” hypothesis comes from research at Stanford University where old mice injected with plasma from umbilical cords of newborn human babies improved the old mice’s performance on memory tests. Weird. The price of an organ transplant can be extremely expensive with more than 116 000 Americans waiting to receive a transplant. A kidney transplant is over $400 000 while a heart can be $1.4M. That is, however, the cost of the transplant surgery and not how much you would make selling your organs. Though illegal in the US and most other nations, the organ black market does exist. Based on reports by the World Health Organization, a kidney in India can go for $20 000; in China, $40 000; but in Israel, you can make as much as $160 000 Not willing to part with, well, a part of you? Try selling your hair! A real wig can cost $800 to $3 000 It’s clear that some body parts are worth a lot, but some people have really put a price tag on their parts Sources state that Rihanna’s legs are insured for $1 000 000, but that’s nothing compared to Cristiano Ronaldo, whose legs are $144 million. Then there are the services your body provides. Right now, you’re breathing. You exhale 11 000L a day and that means you can blow up the tires for about 275 cars. Your sneeze has a wind speed of 4.5 meters per second which is enough wind to power a small electric wind turbine. Your cough is even more powerful at 22.4 meters per second and could power a utility scale windmill. Your farts? If your diet is rich in beans, you can produce 68 mL of carbon dioxide in a single day. If you store these (we won’t ask you why) but if you did, in 40 years you would have an approximate metric ton of CO2. That’s a lot of gas, but it would only be worth $220. Meanwhile, your brain can store 100 tb of information. The retail value of a hard drive that big is upwards to $2 500. Then, there are elements that make up you. Though we’re made mostly of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen, there are some very valuable trace elements that contribute to your design like copper, gold, and even uranium. However, if you added this all up, your elemental dollar amount is close to… one dollar.

  4. The Alex Rider book Snakehead had an idea like this. After losing so much money due to Alex's interference. The Antagonist takes him to a 'hospital' where he plans to sell Alex's body parts bit by bit. Genius and scary at the same time.

  6. Don't be happy as your body parts r do expensive think on the other side…. What if u need a kidney or something else

  7. I'm gonna sell my skin by using potatoe peeler… and store it in freezer or something. 😂😂😂for one dollar. you just read my dark humor comments, good god.

  8. Anybody interested in some kidneys? Need some money to pay my bills. LOL don’t say stuff like that on the dark web, they’ll take that shit seriously

  9. …hm…I guess that it has some kind of deeper meaning. As in, your body parts only cost so much because of how they're made. But if you just sold all those elements in their original forms they'd only cost a single dollar. So, sometimes it's not about the material. It's about how it's made.

    Or it might just be me overthinking this.

  10. Warum sind einige Videotitel und Beschreibungen komplett in deutsch während das Video selbst in englisch ist? Just curious 😉

  11. If only I could sell one of my kidneys without getting the operation performed in a shithole country where people probably don't even wash their hands let alone conform to proper medical practice
