abstract
Does the commodification of the self have a positive impact on the mental well-being of the donor? Our purpose is to evaluate the mental well-being from donating parts of the self for medical purposes. This issue straddles political, cultural, and religious boundaries, with the ability to undermine the morals of the social structure that has been built upon in the United States. The affects are mental as well as physical for the donor. Not only do donors have to worry about retaining health, but enduring the mental strain or rewards of giving a part of themselves to someone else or a medical institution. Thus, the independent variable of this research will be the commodification of the self and the dependent variable will concern mental health and well-being. The purpose of our research will focus on who participates in this commodification of the self and the after effects of participation. ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research), National Comorbidity Survey: Replication(NCS-R),2001-2003,will be utilized throughout our
