Walnuts are Looks like brain, also good for your brain, is that why they are shaped like a brain or they are shaped like a brain so we assumed they are Looks like brain, also good for your brain. I guess there are proven benefits of walnuts. The human brain is made up of about 60% of what is called "structural fat" and needs high-quality fats like omega-3s to function properly by keeping the brain fluid and flexible. Walnuts are loaded with omega-3s, which make them the ultimate "brain food." The antioxidants in walnuts may help counteract age-related cognitive decline and even reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's. So it is a proven fact that the walnuts are good for your brain.
Now here is a coincidence for you to think about. When I got this whole nut out from its shell without breaking it, I thought of Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate factory. He had squirrels to remove the walnuts from their shell and one of the visitors asked him why use squirrels? "You see only squirrels are able to get the whole not out almost every single nut" was his answer. Yesterday while flicking channels I caught the same scene from the movie. I might also add that I had already planned to post this image today before watching the movie yesterday.
Finally another interesting bit of information. Have you ever wondered why your brain has wrinkles. It's the same concept of fractals - finite volume but infinite surface area. If the wrinkles weren't there, and the brain was 'unfolded' the brain would be approximately the size of a pillow. This again reminds me of a joke - "I dreamed that I ate a giant marshmallow and when I woke up, my pillow was missing."
