Solanum is the Latin term for a large genus of flowering plants. Some are poisonous (deadly nightshade), others have a medicinal role (containing atropine, hyoscine and physostigmine used as eye medicines) and others are foodstuffs including potatoes, aubergines, chilli peppers and tomatoes. The Solanum genus presents both risks and benefits to society but overall the balance is positive favouring their nutritional value and medicinal properties.
