The Solanaceae Family & Parkinson's Risk

For some reason, many of the foods that I love ( peppers-especially the hot ones, tomatoes, potatoes, goji berries) are all part of the Solanaceae family, so naturally I was pleased to come across this recent article from Dr. Douglass:

In one new study, researchers looked at the role of diet in Parkinson’s and found that vegetables overall won’t do much to lower your risk. But some veggies did offer some mild protection, like peppers and tomatoes.
Turns out all of the veggies that lowered the risk were part of the Solanaceae family.
Want to know what else is part of the Solanaceae family? Tobacco!
