Get Your Tomato Questions Answered

Tomatoes and nightshade vegetables - survey the field and you'll hear high praise for them. From lycopene to micronutrients, there's a lot to admire about these botanical fruits....not to mention the taste! How many people don't love a good tomato or tamarillo?

Yet some have chosen to swear off the nightshade family - often called the, "deadly nightshades."

They wonder if eating a tomato can be entirely healthy if its cousin, a wild bush, can kill you when you eat its berries.

Other believe nightshade vegetables bring on arthritis or various skin problems.

So is there any basis to their fears?

I tell you what you need to know about the nightshade family here.
