All know the saying “You are what you eat”. So — perhaps it is hidden more sense than we think. We found 9 products, reminiscent of those parts of our body for which they are particularly useful. For example, the walnut kernel very similar to the brain. Coincidence? Possible. But not the only.
Carrots — eyes
Cut the carrot slices a bit to the North and you’ll see how this vegetable resembles the eye, down to the smallest lines that mimic the iris. And it is true that, leaning on the carrot, you do to your eyes a good deed. It is full of vitamins and antioxidants (beta-carotene, for example), which reduce the risk of vision loss in the elderly.
Walnut — brain
The folds and wrinkles of a walnut make it a form incredibly similar to the brain with its left and right hemispheres. And unsurprisingly nuts are considered to be “food for grey matter” — they contain a high concentration of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which support normal functioning of the brain.

Grapefruit — Breasts
The similarities with female breast round citrus like lemon and grapefruit can be more than just coincidence. In the so-called grapefruit contains limonoids, a substance that prevents the formation of cancer cells in the breast.
Tomatoes — heart
Cut the tomato in half, and you will see many cameras that resemble the structure of the heart. Studies have shown that due to the content of lycopene tomatoes help reduce the risk of heart disease. And if you add to this vegetable and a little fat — olive oil or avocado, the digestibility of lycopene increases by almost ten times.
Red wine — blood
