Potatoes need no introduction and bla bla bla about how good and bad they are. I just would like to let you all know about toxicity in potatoes. I am sure many of us did not realise that potato plant poisoning occurs when someone eats the green tubers or new sprouts of the potato plant. The poison is found throughout the plant, but especially in green potatoes and new sprouts. Never eat potatoes that are spoiled or green below the skin, always throw away the sprouts (the green is due to a high concentration of the glycoalkaloid poison). Potatoes that are not green and have had any sprouts removed are safe to eat. Read more from Snopes.com.
