I recall an article in Scientific American on the topic years ago. It made the point that every cell in your body, from brain cells to toenail cells, can trace its history back to the very first cell in an unbroken chain of cell division.
That's funny. I tell people all the time "every single one of us represents an unbroken chain of successful reproduction going back a couple billion of year. Make good choices!"
That cancer angle is real though. Plants are pretty complicated, but that any animal even exists is downright amazing.
