a forest in the chest

It must be a slow news day as the Guardian is reporting the story of a man in the Urals who supposedly had a spruce fir seedling removed from his lung. This seems more suited to the Fortean Times than the Guardian. It makes me think of fairy tales, forest curses and the scene from Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain in which the conquistador drinks of the tree of life.
