Can a seed grow in your body?

Can a seed grow in your body?

In childhood, I had a question. "Can a seed grow in my body? But Exactly I knew the answer "No". Because how can a seed grow inside the human body without any of plant growth requirements.
To grow a plant there should be water, nutrients, air, soil, light, temperature, and space. Some of these factors are present in the human body. (Not all) That corrects there exist some plant growth requirements in the human body but how it's possible to grow a plant seed withing mixing Acid such as hydrochloric inside the human stomach. So the scientific answer for my childhood question is again "NO".

But how this is possible:

"A Massachusetts man who was rushed to hospital with a collapsed lung came home with an unusual diagnosis: a pea plant growing in his lungs.

Ron Sveden had been battling emphysema for months when his condition deteriorated.


He was diagnosed with a cancer when he was diagnosed with X-rays in his lungs.


Doctors believe that Mr Sveden ate some point at the pea, but it "went down the wrong way" and sprouted.


"One of the first meals I had was in the hospital after the surgery. I was laughed at myself and ate them," Mr Sveden told a local Boston TV reporter.


Mr Sveden said the plant was about half an inch (1.25cm) in size.


"This would have gone to the full-term and I'd be working for the Jolly Green Giant, I don't know. I think the thing that finally dawned on me is that it's the cancer," Mr Sveden said.


He is currently recovering at home with his wife Nancy, who joked that God must have a sense of humor."

Now I will explain to you the above story in Science,

According to doctors when Mr.Ron Sveden( the man mentioned above) eating pea, one seed was jumped from the wrong side without going to the stomach directly. Take a look at the below picture.

Now I think you understood something. When we are eating food, an organ named Epiglottis block the path to the respiration system( located in the throat) and make the food particle to pass yo the stomach directly. It act as a door. Take a look,
But rarely there are some instances in which food particles passing to lungs through Epiglottis. That's the reason for Mr. Ron Sveden's case. So if any seed went to the lung through that there is a high possibility to grow. Because in the lungs there is oxygen, temperature/heat, and water/moisture. But if a seed grew inside your lungs, it's leaves and roots will not come out from your nose or mouth! Because Sunlight is essential to plant growth. (There is no sunlight) According to BBC the plant which grew inside Mr. Ron's lung was only 1.25cm.

So Finally remember there is no chance to grow a seed inside the human stomach but there is a possibility to grow inside the human body!
