10 Body Parts You Can (Legally) Sell in the USA – surprised?

It is illegal to sell organs and tissues, but there are at least 10 body parts and fluids that are legally bought and sold every day (in the United States). To understand how much a person is worth, it is important to consider the value of their hair, stool, and semen.

Hair is a common commodity in the wig industry, as it looks and feels more authentic than synthetic hair. The value of a person’s hair depends on its color, length, thickness, and whether it has been dyed or exposed to cigarette smoke. While people can make money from selling their hair, there are also many options to donate it to organizations that make wigs for cancer patients.

Stool is another body part that can be sold for medical research. Companies like Human Microbes are in the market for the 0.1% of people who have unique health markers that make their stool worth researching. If a person is accepted, they can make up to $500 per successful sample, which can add up to $180,000 a year if they ship daily.

Finally, there is the option to donate semen for cash. However, it is highly unlikely that a person will even get selected, as California Cryobank and Fairfax Cryobank only accept 1% of applicants. This is due to low sperm counts, questionable health history, and other factors such as genetics. If accepted, a person can make up to $1,500 per month.

In conclusion, while it is illegal to sell organs and tissues in the United States, there are at least 10 body parts and fluids that are legally bought and sold every day. Hair, stool, and semen are three of the most common commodities, and people can make money by selling or donating these body parts.
