According to the BBC, humans are close relatives of pumpkins:
I think I'll have one over for Thanksgiving! (After all, we shouldn't discriminate on the basis of minor biological differences.)
It is a fact that 75% of our genetic make-up is the same as a pumpkin.
Although we like to think we are special, our genes bring us down to Earth. DNA is what ties the entire living world together. It may well account for the extraordinary diversity among organisms but it also serves to underline their common origins - we all evolved from the same soup of chemicals.
