In 2012, MedicalTranscription.net, an online resource for aspiring medical transcriptionists, created an infographic quoting how much certain organs and limbs would sell for (based on black market value and medical demand). The graph also explains why corpse listings on the black market is not as creepy or absurd as we might think.
