    It is explained here why we should avoid nightshades. In my case I have noticed that potatoes are OK for me /not too many/, but capsicum and tomatoes are bad. It is from naturalindocrinesolutions.com

    The flowers, fruit, and foliage of the nightshade family contain a type of saponin called glycoalkaloids (e.g.the α-solanine and α-chaconine in potato, α-solanine in eggplant, and the α-tomatine in tomato). Additionally,tomato lectin is known to enter the blood stream relatively quickly in humans, which suggests that tomato lectin can contribute to the development of a leaky gut so should be avoided in those people with autoimmune conditions.
