How much is your body worth?
A: According to http://soundmedicine.iu.edu/archive/2003/quiz/humanWorth.html
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!
But according to this website:
We are only worth $4.50!
But from this website,
the price ranges from $23.49 to priceless.
So it really depends on how you measure it and if it is allowed to be ethical or not.
depends how good you look............... jk
This article might be funny if it wasn't real.
How sad is it that we really need to do all these studies to see what we are worth just to try to assign some sort of value to ourselves when God is screaming, "YOU ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN YOU COULD EVER REALIZE!! YOU ARE WORTH MY SON DYING ON THE CROSS FOR YOU! THAT IS HOW MUCH YOU ARE REALLY WORTH!!!"
Jesus dying on the cross for us is priceless. You can't put a price on that.
And when you really think about it, it makes 45 million dollars look like a drop in the bucket!!
Thank you Jesus for making me more valuable than money could ever buy!
