People that are struggling financially have found an unusual way to pay the bills.

Selling human hair or breast milk on the internet, hawking vital organs on the black market, and women selling their eggs to fertility clinics have become ways for some people to get extra income.

Using websites like buyandsellhair.com, people can get paid thousands of dollars for their long locks.

Human breast milk can reportedly be sold online for around 5 dollars an ounce.

A survey from one clinic found that 65 percent of women who were donating their eggs were motivated in part by financial reasons.

Female egg donors at Shady Grove Fertility Center are paid 7 thousand dollars for their first egg donation, 75 hundred for their second and 8 thousand dollars for each egg up to six that they donate after that.

It is legal for people to sell hair, breast milk, or their eggs.

And although it is illegal for humans to sell their own vital organs like kidneys, the black market fills the demand.

What do you think about people selling parts of their body for money?
