Pea Plant Grows In Man’s Lung In Our Human Compost X Ray Pictures

by | 11th, August 2010

X RAY of The Day features Massachusetts man Ron Sveden and the pea plant growing in his lung. (Does this count as one of your Five A Day?)

Sveden, who suffers from emphysema had been coughing a lot and feeling “listless“. His wife phones called 911. Medics discovered one of this lungs had collapsed. In the lung is a pea plant. It is half-an inch high.

The medics guess that the pea grew when Sveden swallowed a pea down the wrong hole.

Sveden is unsure of the pea would have “gone full term and I’d be working for the Jolly Green Giant… One of the first meals I had in the hospital after the surgery had peas for the vegetable. I laughed to myself and ate them.”

Lucky they didn’t give him a pumpkin. When those things take root you can look fat.

Conclusion: Eat vegetables before they eat you. Enjoy the gallery of horrors:
