امروز مطلبی علمی، جذاب و جالب از آقای دکتر احمدی دریافت کردم که خواص دارویی میوه ها و سبزیجات رنگی  برحسب تناسب شکل ظاهری آنها با اعضای بدن ذکر شده ضمن تشکر از ایشان به خاطر انتخاب متن قشنگشون، اونو تقدیم می کنم به دوستای وبلاگی ام امیدوارم مورد استفاده قرار بگیره.

*CARROTS – EYES*

*SLICE a carrot and it looks just like an eye, right down to the pattern of
the iris. It’s a clear clue to the importance this everyday veg has for
vision. Carrots get their orange colour from a plant chemical called
betacarotene, which reduces the risk of developing cataracts. The chemical
also protects against macular degeneration an age-related sight problem that
affects one in four over-65s. It is the most common cause of blindness in
Britain. But popping a betacarotene pill doesn’t have the same effect, say
scientists at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore *

**WALNUT – BRAIN *

*THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain - and
provide a clue to the benefits. Walnuts are the only nuts which contain
significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. They may also help head off
dementia. An American study found that walnut extract broke down the
protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers at
Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing
in rats. Dr James Joseph, who headed the study, said walnuts also appear to
enhance signalling within the brain and encourage new messaging links
between brain cells. *

**TOMATO – HEART*

*A 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. The Women’s Health Study — an
American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women — found
women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart
disease
than women who had very little lycopene. Lab experiments have also
shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol.
One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and
Medicine
, said there was “convincing vidence’ that lycopene prevented
coronary heart disease. *

**GRAPES – LUNGS *

*OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up
with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble
bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.
One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these
alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy. A diet high
in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung
cancer
and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called
proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered
by allergy.


**CHEESE – BONES *

*A nice ‘holey’ cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it
even resembles their internal structure. And like most cheeses, it is a rich
source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk
of osteoporosis later in life. Together with another mineral called
phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to ‘power’
muscles. Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for
strong bones. A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who
increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg – equal to an extra two
slices of cheddar - boosted their bone density by six per cent. *

*

**GINGER – STOMACH *

*Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the
stomach. So it’s interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding
digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the
stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion
sickness
. But the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting the chemical
that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumors. *

*

**BANANA (SMILE) – DEPRESSION *

*Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana. The
popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan. Once it has been
digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter
called serotonin. This is one of the most important mood-regulating
chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting
levels of serotonin production. Higher levels are associated with better
moods. *

*

**MUSHROOM – EAR*

*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.
That’s because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain
vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the
tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain. *

*

**BROCCOLI – CANCER *

*Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of
cancer cells. Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a
crucial role in preventing the disease. Last year, a team of researchers at
the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was
enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent. In Britain,
prostate cancer kills one man every hour.*
