Interesting tie on these results:) I like raw potatoes and I am not dead, so I assume it's OK.

The only thing I can imagine happening is a belly ache, but what do I know. I've eaten pieces of raw potato (not a whole one) and have had no ill effects, but they are pretty high in Potassium and that can make you have a stomach rebellion like green bananas.

Do you eat the skin raw at all? Apparently it's the skin and other green parts of the plant that contain toxins - I'm fairly certain the rest of the flesh is relatively OK. Certainly, I can't chop up potatoes without eating a bit. That's pretty typical of most of my cooking, though..

No, come to think of it, I have never eaten the skin, and I'm careful to remove the eyes and areas around any sprouts. Just the flesh part.

I'll tell you one thing, though... nothing smells worse than rotten potatoes. It's just ghastly.
