The eighth chapter of Dr. Sigrid Fry-Revere's recently published book The Kidney Sellers is entitled "Organs for Opium". This book section chronicles the author's experiences in Tabriz, Iran. I think I now know the names of more Iranian cities than American cities. The highlights of this shorter chapter include the following: the self-concept of the inhabitants of Tabriz, the extensive Azerbaijani influence in Tabriz, the author's Western travel lifestyle wants, the practice of daughter "gifting", the primary motivating force for Iranian kidney donors, the unknown percentage of addicted Iranian kidney donors, cultural culinary mishaps, child brides, the real reason why Iran simultaneously has eliminated its kidney shortage but has fewer kidney transplants per capita than the U.S., the author's interesting Christmas traditions, and archeological treasures. The LIBERTARIAN BIOETHICS BLOGger identified no lowlights in this chapter.
