I remember riding my bike to primary school one day and wondering why scientists had never experimented with the plants that grew underneath a road bridge near my home. Perhaps, I reasoned, there could be a cure for cancer nestling within the leaves and seeds. I couldn’t understand why children weren’t more often asked for their thoughts in this matter, and felt very smug on the ride to school.
