It can also help to cure Alzheimer’s disease. If Amitabh Bachhan, in the movie ‘Black’ would have had some walnuts, he might have not victimized with Alzheimer. What say?

 

Tomato – Heart

Tomato is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of Lycopene (a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers).
It prevents coronary heart disease as well. So while watching TV, from now onwards we may take sliced tomatoes instead of popcorns!
Grapes – Lungs

Our lungs are made up of branches of very narrow airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called ‘alveoli’. These structures, appear like bunches of grapes. It allows oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.
Grapes are efficient to low down the risk of lung cancer and ‘emphysema’. Grape seeds contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy. So what’s gen next necessity to replace smoking? Gulping the grapes! Right?

The benefits could go much farther. So drink a glass of ginger-lemon and hit hard an extreme sport. May be bungee-jumping is a good idea!

Banana  – Smile (Depression)  

Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana. This globally popular fruit contains a protein called ‘tryptophan’. Digested tryptophan gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called ‘serotonin’.This is one of the most important mood-regulating hormones in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production. You know smiles and happiness are siblings? Hey, they are infectious too!

Mushroom – Ears  

Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear. And guess what? Adding it to your cooking, could actually improve your hearing.
