This is the time of the year for harvesting potatoes so I thought it apt to talk about them. Often they are regarded as fattening which is a shame as they are a useful carbohydrate. They also provide vitamin C plus fibre if eaten with the skins on.

Lille, France – September 4, 2013. 

During a McCain sponsored press conference held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands last Tuesday,various potential health benefits of potatoes were discussed. 

This event took place at the same time as physicians from around the world were discussing advances in medical prevention and management of widespread cardio-metabolic diseases such as high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. With such diseases representing the world’s leading cause of premature death and the concept of ‘sustainable nutrition’ at the heart of insuring access to safe and nutritious foods today and tomorrow, these two topics have now
become major public issues.
