Are Potatoes Good or Bad
by Dwayne Hines
Have you noticed the attack on potatoes in the press? Potatoes even
made the front page of the Wall Street Journal recently. The story is
the move by the Department of Agriculture to eliminate the potato
from school breakfasts – at least federally subsidized breakfasts.
And they are also going to be largely removed from lunch menus as
All of this concern about getting the potato off the menus begs the
question – what is wrong with the potato? Is it some nefarious food
element that will drastically harm children? Should you also avoid
the potato like the plague?
It turns out the basis for the issue, according to the Wall Street
Journal, is the Institute of Medicine’s decision that people are
getting too much potato intake and not enough of other vegetables.
Part of the concern that people have is the carbohydrate content of
the potato. However, that concern is really a misunderstanding about
starch. It turns out that potatoes and other complex carbs contain
what is called resistant starch. An interesting article notes the
benefits of: "(beans contain) resistant starch, an ab-fat fighter
that's also found in potatoes, bananas, and corn. Resistant starch
does not turn to sugar like most other carbs; instead, it passes
through the body undigested, acting like a fiber, explains Keri
Gans, R.D., a registered dietitian in New York City and member of
the American Dietetic Association. She suggests adding chickpeas or
kidney beans to your salad - even bean dip will do the trick (yum!)."
So the idea of all the starch in potato contributing to problems in
the body is erroneous. Resistant starch is like fiber and acts to
help keep your body trim, not fat. Complex carb foods such as the
potato, bean, or corn are super. Problems only occur when they are
highly processed and the good elements are removed. It's okay to
enjoy a potato now and then – you won't fall apart. And what about
mashed potatoes? Go with a "skins on' approach.

We all know what is going on. If potatoes was this bad (unless deep
fried) how come people are some how health from our age going back
IN TIME? Probably, is one of those conspiracy created by a
biochemical food and drug industry, to make people eating more of
those crap seeds and vegetables called transgenic. The governament
does not love YOU readers, they all love your money, they must cut
off all alcoholl and smoke industries, and transgenic food, wich
make´people really ill.
Good info. on the potato. Most if not all of the information that's
distributed by the main stream media is usually half-truths or
outright lies about everything. If they say the sky is blue. At this
day and time I would assume it was green if I couldn't see or discern
the truth for myself.
