If you have joint pain then avoid them, why mess with it? Move on to other foods like sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes baked or microwaved and then fried in butter or coconut oil are far more flavorful than white potatoes, at least for me. (more)

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.

Acceptable, not just a safe starch. Humans, as a species, have been eating roots and tubers for quite a while.
