Some other members of the nightshade family include goji berries, gooseberries cayenne and paprika.
Are ALL people affected by nightshades? Probably not, but I have read enough and seen some rather remarkable changes that lead me to believe that if someone is affected by inflammation and the immune responses mentioned above, it would be wise to eliminate nightshades from the diet completely for 30 days and then re-evaluate your condition and level of symptoms. It is advisable to re-introduce one nightshade at a time in order to keep track of any sensitivity (i.e., re-introduce tomatoes, wait 3-4 days and, if no symptoms arise, move on to the next nightshade. If you have a reaction/recurrence of symptoms, you will at least know which nightshade to avoid).
At worst, you will miss eating some tasty vegetables (salsa anyone?). At best, you could have a drastic reduction or elimination of pain/symptoms and living a better quality of life. In my book, the 30 days would be well worth it.
