You are what you eat – but it might be truer than ever! The Doctors examine foods that resemble the body parts that they are beneficial for.
The panel looks into a slew of healthy edibles with the idea that food can be your medicine, not your poison.
Oranges: resembles the breasts.
Breast specialist Dr. Kristi Funk explains that antioxidants in citrus fruits can help with breast health.

In addition to oranges, she recommends tangerines and grapefruits along with finding ways to incorporate citrus into meals other than breakfast.
Grapes: resembles the lungs
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says that red grapes and especially the skin of the fruit are very high in resveratrol, which is another strong antioxidant. It can also act as an expectorant to help with phlegm. He notes that green grapes are also high in resveratrol.
