Fact of the Day; Potatoes Are Toxic


Due to a concentration of glycoalkaloids if not properly prepared or grown, potatoes could be toxic. However it's not that scary, if you happen to eat a "non-perfect" potato then you would most likely suffer something like a headache or cramps. There have only been several rare cases where potato poisoning led to a coma or death.

Really? I would like to see a source on this. Does this also mean that potatoe chips are also toxic?

Death by potato. I always thought that would only happen due to a potato gun, or perhaps morbid obesity due to a love of starches.
