					Food is good for that part of the body, which is similar
All familiar with the statement, "You - you are what you eat." So - maybe it is hidden more
sense than we think. We found 10 products, in form very reminiscent of those parts of the
body for which they are particularly useful. For example, the kernel of walnut is very similar
to the brain. Coincidence? Possible. But not the only one:
Carrots - eyes




Cut the carrots plastics little obliquely - and see how this vegetable resembles eye down to
the smallest lines that mimic the iris. And it is true that leaning on the carrots, you do for
your eyes a good thing. It is full of vitamins and antioxidants (beta-carotene, for example),
which reduce the risk of vision loss in the elderly.
Walnut - the brain




Folds and wrinkles of a walnut shape make it incredibly similar to the brain with its left and
right hemispheres. It is not surprising that the nuts are considered "food for the gray
matter" - they contain a high concentration of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which
support normal brain function.
Celery - bones




The long, thin stalks celery like bones - and very good for them. Celery - a source of
silicon, which regulates bone mineralization.
Avocado - the uterus




Avocado is shaped like a uterus and is very useful for reproductive health. Avocados
contain a lot of folic acid, which reduces the risk of cervical dysplasia.
Shellfish - male gonads




Studies have shown that clams are really good for men's health. It contains folic acid and
zinc, which can greatly improve the quality of sperm.
Grapefruit - chest




The similarity with the female breasts round citrus like lemons and grapefruits can be more
than just a fluke.Grapefruit contains the so-called "limonoids" - substances that prevent the
formation of cancerous cells in the breast.
Tomatoes - heart




Cut the tomatoes in half, and you will see numerous chambers that resemble the structure
of the heart.Studies have shown that due to the content of lycopene, tomatoes reduce the
risk of heart disease. And if you add to that a little vegetable oil - olive oil or avocado, the
digestibility of lycopene increased by almost ten times.
Red wine - blood




Like a blood red wine is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, including resveratrol. After
drinking a little red wine, you get protection against LDL cholesterol, which can cause heart
disease. In addition, the wine has a blood-thinning effect, so - prevent the formation of
blood clots.
Ginger - stomach




Ginger is similar to the stomach and is known to help cope with nausea. It contains
gingerol, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
