Kidney Worth Maybe $1600 In Pakistan

If selling your spouse or children is a bit much for you, there's another option: your kidney.

Although outlawed in 2007, the sale of human kidneys to would-be recipients is apparently not hard to arrange, and doesn't net sellers much for their risks: $1100-$1600.

It'd be interesting to see long-term data on the population's health, to ascertain whether the ban had an impact, and if so, good or ill.
