The level of greed of some people is amazing. Organ transplants are life threatening.
Many people need them to survive, but their are transplant lists For properly donated organs. Its not just the organs that can be a problem but the amount of medication
needed for survival. If the host accepts the transplanted organ. If anyone buys a
black market organ they have no idea if its healthy, the source and so on.

I have also heard tales of organ harvesting from inmates in chinese prisions. Don't know how true that is, but it does make one wonder . . . . .

Thanks for sharing that Richard. It is amazing that this goes on. But with all the money involved, I guess that I should not be so naiive.
