    I don't know if it's the serotonin or the histamine (or both), but if i eat too many tomatoes a few days in a row, I will get a 24 hour allergy attack with excessive sneezing, congestion, red eyes, etc..

    Could also be tomato lectins, as tomatos belong to the nightshades group, which are known to aggravate inflammatory and autoimmune disorders in some susceptible individuals.

    Yes and add in all the seeds with their own built in antinutrients.

    Do we know the amounts? I thought pineapple was safe and eat quite a bit when I get a chance. Does anyone know if serotonin will survive stomach acid?

    Hormones do survive the gut. And do increase plasma levels.

    I pulled it off the net somewhere, but do not remember where. If I see it again I will give you the source.

    From now on, I will try to add the source along with the quote. However, I already have a big list of quotes set aside to post and do not have the citations with them. :(
