Default I'm speaking at the WAP conference in Chicago...

So, I'll be presenting on the nightshade plant mechanisms at the Weston A. Price annual conference in Schaumburg, IL, November 13-16th (I'm speaking on the 16th).

Abstract of my presentation:
Quote:
Garrett Smith: Nightshades: The Inflammatory Scientific Evidence (Sunday Track II, 1:30-2:50)
The "nightshade" family of plants, Solanaceae genera and species, has long been dubiously associated with arthritis, yet this has not stopped the edible family members--tomatoes, potatoes, Capsicum peppers, eggplant, Cape gooseberries, ashwaghandha, and goji/wolf berries--from becoming nearly one-fourth of the Standard American Diet, and often a higher percentage among the "health-seeker" population. Many people, healthcare practitioners included, believe that the edible nightshades are completely benign, that only those with food allergies/sensitivities to them have health issues with their consumption, or that the health benefits far outweigh any potential drawbacks.

This presentation will delve into multiple biochemical and neurophysiologic mechanisms of how the edible nightshades are potentially damaging to the health of any species, human or animal, that consumes them. Common general symptoms of nightshade sensitivity will be presented, as will nutritional strategies that may help decrease individual sensitivity. Alternative foods to replace nightshades in the diet will also be discussed.
Important question...anyone live in this area who'd like to offer a place to crash?
