Vegsource Videos: Potatoes & John Robbins
2 Vegsource Videos
Recently a Harvard study concluded that potatoes are bad for those wanting to lose weight and be healthy.
But is this true and accurate? Or another example of shoddy "science?"
Well, if we are discussing French Fries, Potato Chips, and the standard versions of mashed, boiled and baked potatoes (covered with cheese, butter, bacon and sour cream) then yes, the potato looks like "bad news."
However, if we are talking about the plain old baked potato, then this study has no impact. Both the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Health Organization declared 2008 "The International Year of the Potato" -- based on the potato's importance to the survival of the human race.
So the plain old potato is still optimal for weight loss and health. Here's Dr. McDougall spreading some education about the potato.
