What shocking thing did you learn today?

I came across this while on twitter, There is a village in Nepal called the “Kidney village” where almost everyone has sold one kidney. They sell their kidney for as low as £160 to organ traffickers who then charge the recipients £6500 upwards.
The traffickers deceive them, make them believe their kidneys would grow back.

"This illegal trade has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black-market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually – more than one every hour – according to the World Health Organisation."

More than 7,000 kidneys are gotten from these people every year.

I am not sure if the desperation of money is the motive here, but its creepy as hell.
