Potatoes are poisonous, eat with care


Potatoes are daily diet to many families, especially in the West and America. But do you know that potatoes are poisonous when the skin turns green?

The green is due to a high concentration of the glycoalkaloid poison. Therefore, it is best to remove potato skin before eating.

There is also poison in the stems and leaves of potato plants. Remember not to drink potato leaf tea. It can kill you.

Even though potato poison is rare, it can still occur. Death normally comes after a period of weakness and confusion, followed by a coma.
