Nightshades: peppers, tomatoes, potatoes (unsure about sweet potatoes--they're in the morning glory family, but morning glories might be nightshades--don't know), eggplant and tobacco. There may be more, but those are the ones I know of.

As others have said, your genotype is OO, so you don't have any A genetically. If you were A instead, your genotype would be AO and so, you would have aspects of A and O. But unless you really do inherit all alleles from your parents, you don't have any A aspects.

Sweet potatoes are not nightshades they are in the convolvulaceae. (convovulus, ipomoea) They are the thicken root of a tropical morning glory. I eat these and have not troble with joint pain. I no longer eat meat and other vegies that have been prepared in the same pot with potatoes it has too much of an effect. Sweet potatoes with ghee or oil are good though.
I am currently just winding up a Master Gardener class, which means I ahve to know or know where to find the answers for people. It is interesting to look at the different families and see that both beneficials and avoids are int he same family.

I think it's all in the head about being raised by a different type if you are O, especially with O being most susceptible to the other blood types, or so as I have read. My mother is O like myself, but my dad is a B, and sometimes I have wandering fantasies about being a nomadic musician, eating cheese and drinking milk. and i know it's not me, since when i revert back to the idea of being a robust ambitious o, and then i feel stronger and worry less about my life later on. (FEEL stronger, i'm not really that strong) Not to mention, my MOM'S parents are O and A, and she really sometimes freaks me out how she tries to impersonate A-type personality. On the course, my B father's parents were O and AB, and i think i notice resistance from both of those types, but he's still a forgetful B mostly.

Welcome to the board. We hope you love it as much as most of us do!! The personalities don't always seem to mesh with what we read, but it's amazing how the diet has helped many folks. Feel free to ask for help & ask Qs. There are a lot of knowledgable people here!!
All the (positive) blood types are in my family tree, too. I didn't know most of this info till recent years, but it is fascinating. My maternal grandma was a B, maternal grandpa an A, my mom an A, my aunt (her sister) an AB. All these years I didn't know that. She told me in her late 80s-now she's 94! My dad was an O, but I don't have definitive info on his parents. I suspect his mom was an O as she had classical physical traits including having a stroke! My sis & I are both Os, so I know my mom's recessive was O. I was disappointed to find out I was an O years ago, but now am glad from what I know about BTD!!
I wonder if there is anyone on here whose family members are all one type (extended family). It seems we are all from a variety.
Even tho Bs can have dairy, it seems several are allergic to milk. Maybe it's how "Big Ag" processes it. It also hints that maybe certain family allergies & nationalities affect us as individuals. It's all so fascinating-glad you are getting into it at a young age, not 50, like I was!!
