Can a seed really grow inside your body? Haha, of course not. (wait…what?)

Remember when you were a kid and that kid with the slicked back black hair despite being 8 years old told you that if you eat a watermelon seed you would grow watermelons in your stomach? You laughed him off the playground then, but when you went home you asked your mom for reassurance that wasn’t possible. Good ‘ol mom told you how silly that was and you rested easy that night.

Well mom was WRONG. (kind of)

Check out this story in Massachusetts where an elderly man thought he had cancer. Ends up he didn’t, he just had a pea sprout growing inside his body. Let me repeat. Pea sprout. Inside. Body.
