Why do people perpetuate shit like this? IIRC it was Sagan who said something like 'the chemical elements contained in your body are worth 3 dollars'. I don't even know if that's true or if he said that, but I don't go around spitting muh facts like that. Also, I don't use generic words like chemicals. I'm pretty sure the compounds contained on the human body are worth A LOT more than 5 dollars.

Fucking normies.

I would pay a good amount for some ATP, DNA, ribosomes, enzymes, and other things. I'd say that if you did that, you could sell all of the materials for a few hundred thousand dollars

Organs easily get in the tens and hundreds of thousands.

If Sagan said "the chemical elements etc etc," then he'd be exactly correct, if not an over-estimate.

He said chemical elements, i.e. things that you find on the periodic table. If you took a human body and split all the compounds into the smallest naturally occurring pieces, you'd have a collection stuff worth very little to anybody.

I know that. What I'm criticising is that some Tumblr faggots get the general idea behind that and then turn it into a lie (yer chemicals are worth nuffin you guyz!1!) and spread it everywhere.

This is from a chemistry perspective, not a medical perspective you nerd.
