Potatoes are a nightshade so people allergic to nightshades should be aware. They are actually listed as toxic. Do not eat potato leaves or flowers. Very high in starch, which when cooked, turns into sugar in the body, leading to weight gain and sugar issues. High source of fiber, rich in potassium for high blood pressure, Vit C. Despite what many people think or fear, raw potatoes, exert an excellent effect on all forms of rheumatism and rheumatic arthritis when these diseases have not progressed too far. They also have a good effect on other diseases with uric acid buildup like psoriasis, gallstones, renal pelvis and urinary bladder. Historically, potatoes were used to treat almost all skin diseases, loss of hair, fat formation and dandruff. It’s good to eat the peel also because it contains flourine which preserves the enamel of the teeth. Potatoes can be grown from just the peelings! Do not eat potato sprouts, flowers, leaves or fruit, which resemble greenish dark grey cherry tomatoes, they are very high in the toxic alkaloid solanine, which affects the nervous system, causing weakness and confusion. This is also in tomatoes, eggplants and other nightshades. When exposed to light, this toxin increases, turning potatoes more green, a sign to stay away. Cooking destroys some of the toxin, but not all.
