Arthritis caused by some vegetables/fruit
One of the major problems attributed to consumption of nightshades (group of vegetables) are arthritis like symptoms. In fact some researches believe taht arthritis is often misdiagnosed in people who may in fact only be experiencing the effects of nightshades consumptions. Nightshades are specific group of plants belonging to the solanaceae family, includes over 2.000 species. They are also some of the most popular foods consumed today. They include: Tomatos, all types of peppers, potatoes, eggplants etc. There is also blueberries, huckleberries, going berries and ashwaganda (Indian ginseng) They all contain the same inflammation inducing alkaloids. Nightshades induce inflammation through specific chemical known as solanine. This chemical irritates gastrointestinal track. When absorbed in to the blood stream it can cause the destruction of the oxygen carrying red blood cells. Solanine also stimulate parasympathetic nervous system. It leads to excessive build up of acetylcholine (Ach) Alkaloids in nightshades appear to affect metabolism of calcium. Thought not yet understood how, nightshades may remove calcium from bones and deposit it in soft tissue, setting the stage for arthritis. For this reason researchers advice that all individuals wits osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other joint problems eliminate nightshades food from their diet. Norman F. Childers, Ph.D., is the founder of the Arthritis Nightshades Research Foundation. He has the following to say on this subject: “Diet appears to be a factor in the etiology of arthritis based on surveys of over 1400 volunteers during a 20-year period. Plants in the drug family, Solanaceae (nightshades) are an important causative factor in arthritis in sensitive people.” Nightshades are specific group of plants belonging to the solanaceae family includes over 2.000 species. They are a loss one of the most popular foods consumed today .

It's recommended to stay away from this group of vegetables/fruit for three months if you experiencing any symptoms of arthritis, low energy or asthma. After three months begin to reintroduce one nightshade at a time. Take note of any aches, pains, stiffness, and loss of energy, headaches, respiratory problems or any other symptoms.
