It is commonly acceptable that no price could be labeled on one’s life. However, no matter you have positive or negative attitudes towards it, human body would have certain value as kind of commodity, once a person is dead. And different parts of our body could be priced accordingly, for example, although corneas are tiny, they could be priced by £15,000, or about $22,450), the price of skeleton could be remarkably low in £5,000, about $7,483. The different price is also attributed to how the body part is sold; it is used for specimen, transplanting, or being put on the black market.

If you want to know more about it, you could go and examine the infographic illustrated by Buddy Loans. And you would find it very interesting, although a little bit horrifying.
