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).

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.
