    bell peppers are among the most valuable plant foods and anything that provides valuable nutrition will help to balance the body systems, so surely yes, don' t wait for a 'scientist' to tell you they've proven you'll be healthier by eating healthy food!!

    The nations living in the Balkan Peninsula have a special traditional dish – AJVAR – which is made from peppers, eggplants and tomatoes, and thay make it for winter and store it in glass jars. I suppose that you can buy it in all big stores around Europe and SAD. They have another seasonal dish that is made from the same ingredients, with the addition of onion, called SATARAŠ. You can chek how its made on YouTube. =) I hope this was helpfull

    Could you make a video about ideology chronic pancreatitis?? My son got juvenile diabetes which is type 1 since he has been 12 years old and just a few years ago he got chronic pancreatitis just out of the blue.. He doesn't drink or smoke or do any kind of drug so no one can figure it out. I can't go into the doctor's office with him because he's over 18 yrs old. So I'm pretty much in the dark except what I read on the internet. Any information would be greatly appreciated…

    Does this remind anyone of that Simpsons episode where Homer accidentally makes a hybrid of tomatoes and tobacco using radiation? Bart becomes addicted to tomatoes and the tobacco industry wants to pay an ungodly amount of money to buy the Tomaco.

    I knew eggplants contained nicotine in far less concentrated amounts than tobacco through my own random curiosity research. I didn't know that other nightshade plants like tomatoes, potatoes, and bell peppers have some nicotine though! The cliché goes… you learn something new every day .

    I believe nicotine can have a positive effect ulcerative colitis. My brother acutely quit smoking and developed UC. His GI hinted at trying a nicotine patch. He didn't. It took some time, but ultimately his UC was cured. I remember an episode of "House", where his patient had IBS/ flatulence. Dr. House superscribed smoking 2 cigarettes a day. Yes, fiction, but loosely based on medicine.

    The amount of nicotine derived from food seems negligible compared to one cigarette. In relation to Parkinson's, I think this is going nowhere.

    Dr. Greger, can you do a video on iodine, and maybe the best and worst ways it can affect us, since most of us are deficient. My wife struggles with vitamin D deficiency but hates milk, and vitamin B. We are on our 4th little one and she seems so fatigued, her Dr. said, "take centrum"…..Just curious. Appreciate all your videos!!!

    It is such a frustrating puzzle. Just went through the end of life of someone with Parkinson's. She smoked at several points in her life and drank caffeinated beverages heavily through most of her life. However about 10 year ago, went off caffeine due to afib, and symptoms came up within a few years. Coincidence? So puzzling.

    Can one eat tobacco instead of smoke it? Perhaps put some tobacco leaves in our smoothies. At least it's plant based!

    When I used to walk through the tobacco section of the store my breathing improved, so I tried just smelling pipe tobacco and improved my breathing difficulties more. Smoke had the opposite effect. Always wondered why.
