Whole Health Source: Potatoes and Human Health, Part III
The Bottom Line
You made it to the end! Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.
In my opinion, the scientific literature as a whole, including animal and human studies, suggests rather consistently that potatoes can be a healthy part of a varied diet for most people. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend eating nothing but potatoes for any length of time. If you do choose to eat potatoes, follow these simple guidelines:
- Don't eat potatoes that are green, sprouting, blemished or damaged
- Store them in a cool, dark place. They don't need to be refrigerated but it will extend their life
- Peel them before eating
