Did you know : "Eggplant is richer in nicotine than any other edible plant, with a concentration of 100 ng/g (or 0.01mg/100g). However, the amount of nicotine from eggplant or any other food is negligible compared to passive smoking. On average, 20lbs (9kg) of eggplant contains about the same amount of nicotine as a cigarette." Wiki says.
