Ron Sveden had been battling emphysema for months when his condition deteriorated.
He was steeling himself for a cancer diagnosis when X-rays revealed the growth in his lung.
Doctors believe that Mr Sveden ate the pea at some point, but it “went down the wrong way” and sprouted.
This was among my worst nightmares as a kid.
I don’t even know how this is possible. Oh god. NEVER EATING PEAS AGAIN.
So the BBC is reporting a story they god from Canada about a man in Massachusetts.
I’m gonna call bullshit on this one. Because for a pea to geminate and sprout, it has to be a live seed that has gone through the correct gemination cues; it needs to be grown, then dried, then NOT split or cooked. And somehow it has to end up, intact, in a man’s lung. Where it needs to NOT be immediately attacked by his immune system.
Remember the hoax about the Russian guy who supposedly had a pine tree growing in his lung a few years back?
