If you feel worse when eating raw vegetables, do remember that many plants belong to the solanaceae family and although a green potato is out and out poisonous, aubergines and, tomatoes are not, but could well be better digested if cooked. Look up 'the solanaceae family'..............................Sarah Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.
