Buy A Kidney, Sell A Kidney. Sorry, but transacting kidneys is illegal except in Iran.
People are dying everyday because they suffer from End State Renal Disease (ESRD). The diagnosis of ESRD is when both kidneys have failed. In order to survive, the patient needs kidney dialysis or a transplant. The wait list for a transplant is over 4 years! Over 100,000 people are on a waiting list for a new kidney.
And do you know how much kidney dialysis treatment is for End State Renal Disease? Up to $100,000 per year per person
Another Fact: The world desperately needs donors, but the number of donors as a % of those with ESRD is drastically decreasing.
What does all this mean?
It means that there is a huge shortage of kidneys and without donors, people are dying at an increasing rate.
Should there be a marketplace to legally buy and sell kidneys? Leave a comment below.
