I found this a very interesting question to answer...

First off, check out this website: 
They'll give you an answer after you go through their survey.  I was
worth $2,205,030.00, btw :-)

Here is an article on the worth of your human tissues:

An article on the worth of female eggs:

Human organ market:

"From his neck down a man is worth a couple of dollars a day, from his
neck up he is worth anything that his brain can produce." - Thomas

Interesting opinions on the sale of human organs:

I could not find a definite answer from an authoritive source on how
much the human body is worth, it depends on what you're looking at. 
Chemically, we're worth under $2.  By selling our organs, etc., we
could be worth much much more.

Thanks for the fun question and if you require more information, don't
hesitate to ask for clarification.  And if you find this answer
satisfactory, please feel free to rate it. Thank you!

Some bodies are "valued" higher more than others...
