2. Walnut: Brain
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
3. Celery: Bone
Celery and rhubarb looks very similar to bones in the human body. Sodium is very much essential for our body. If we don’t consume food items that have sodium, our body takes the necessary sodium from the bones. When this happens, our bones become weak.

4. Avocados/Pears: Uterus, Womb/Cervix, and Tesicles
Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? .... It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
5. Clams/Figs/Sprouts: Testicles and Sperm
Research from the Netherlands has suggested that supplementing your diet with folic acid and zinc—both of which clams are high in––can have a significant effect on improving semen quality in men," says Dr. Moulavi.
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
A study was conducted at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio on the requirements to make a healthy sperm. It was found that to make healthy sperm, one would require Vitamin C as well as anti-oxidants in order to protect them from getting damaged. By eating half-a-cup of bean sprouts, one would get 16% of Vitamin C.
6. Citrus Fruits: Breast
Grapefruits, Oranges , and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Grapefruit contains substances called limonoids, which have been shown to inhibit the development of cancer in lab animals and in human breast cells," says Dr. Moulavi.
7. Tomato: Heart
Studies have found that because of the lycopene in tomatoes, there is a reduced risk for heart disease in men and women who eat them," says Somer. And, she adds, if you mix them with a little fat, like olive oil or avocado, it will boost your body's lycopene absorption nearly tenfold.
8. Ginger: Stomach
According to Dr. Moulavi, "gingerol, which is the ingredient responsible for ginger's pungent scent and taste, is listed in the USDA database of phytochemicals as having the ability to prevent nausea and vomiting.
9. Sweet Potatoes: Pancreas
Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene, which is a potent antioxidant that protects all tissues of the body, including the pancreas, from damage associated with cancer or aging," says Somer
10. Onions: Cells
Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.
11. Kidney Beans: Kidneys
Kidney beans help in proper functioning of the kidney. Kidney beans are rich in fiber content and thereby help in maintaining blood sugar levels.
