Harvard Got It Wrong; Nutritious Potato Can Help Fight Obesity

June 28, 2011: 04:28 AM EST
A Harvard study that claims eating potatoes on a regular basis contributes to weight increase and was published by the New England Journal of Medicine failed to adequately study potato's dietary importance, according to an opinion from the Governor of Idaho. Results of the study covered by the Los Angeles Times and other media organization ignored potato's historical and practical contributions to human nutrition and survival. The United Nations declared 2008 as the International Year of the Potato in recognition of its nutritional value and environmentally-friendly cultivation. The potato contains 110 calories per serving, offers 620 grams of potassium (more than a banana), and provides up to 45% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. Other studies over the years have highlighted the potato's nutritional characteristics, as well as its role in weight reduction.
