  • Another reason to chew your food well and not inhale it (pun intended).

  • I don't eat peas. So I've never even heard of the issue. Weird though.

  • not really odd at all.
    people in the medical community see stuff like this all the time, we had a young female patient that had similar symptoms and her lesion on her cxr turned out to be a beetle.
    I've seen sprouted dried beans and peas in noses and ears, sinuses, and insects in the same areas and the lungs.
    I'm not going to even tell you what I've seen stuck in buttholes. That is a whole nother post!

  • The poor old dude. I watched that on the news and felt so bad for him. He had about 4 teeth left in his mouth, had the oxygern attached to his nose , he's sitting in a wheel chair, and then he had to go through having a pea plant growing in his lung. I bet he has trouble swallowing and choked and inhaled the pea, then it grew. Sad. When my Dad was in the last stages of Alzheimers, he inhaled his food so often because he forgot how to chew and swallow. Yep, that's how it happens. It is a tough way to go.

  • That is so sad. I'm not giving up my peas though! We love them. My boys like to pick them right off the vine, shell them and eat them raw.
