This type of bizarre thing do happen in the annals of truly weird medicine.

The Pea that went a wrong way.


Roy Sveden of Brewster in Massachusetts who was suffering from emphysema was admitted to a hospital for severe breathing problems.Doctors found his left lung had collapsed. Initially doctors thought it might be due cancerous tumor but to their surprise they found a pea pod had sprouted in his lung.Surgeons removed the one-and-a-half inch sprout.Doctors think he ate a pea a couple of months ago and it went down the wrong way, and then began to sprout.

After the surgery, Sveden ate peas in his first meal at the hospital.Courageous man indeed.His Friends played pranks on him by sending pea seeds and canned peas just for the fun of it while he is recuperating from surgery at home.He’ll have quite a story to tell his grand-seedlings.He joins Artyom Sidorkin, a Russian man In 2009 who was found to have a five centimeter long pine tree growing in his lung.Pediatric nurse in NYC have reported that that a patient who ate a cockroach that ended up in his lungs and not in his stomach.This type of bizarre thing do happen in the annals of truly weird medicine.

Michael Vincent, a legume expert from Miami University of Ohio said that warm, moist environment in the lung might have aided the seed to germinate but might have withered and died due lack of sunlight in due course.

My grand parents said not to put beans in my ears…now I know why! .One drawback to being vegetarian, you could have a whole salad growing in your lungs. May be the pea Svden ate might be a genetically altered pea.Who knows!

Considering the acidic environment, that would really be an amazing story Ms. Porkchop. I think we were all warned to not eat the watermelon seeds as children.

I saw a comedy where a boy swallows a watermelon seed and the whole fruit starts to grow inside his stomach. Interesting enough, whenever I ate an arc of watermelon, I always thought the watermelon to be a boat and the black seeds to be people inside the boat.
