There are numerous websites on high inflammation foods. Yes, you need to find out what your triggers are but there are some that you would never know. It's best to stay away from the obvious ones that are listed on those sites.

They're also known as new potatoes in some parts of the country. I've been poking around, but can't find the definitive word on this. Not that there is ever a definitive word anywhere about anything. :)

The problem with toxicity in potatoes is their skin, not the flesh. So just eat whatever potato you like, their differences are small. As long as you always skin them.
