    Potato Is Safest Food on Menu

    A new British study has identified the lowly potato as the safest food on the menu, saying it is the least likely food to cause fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, and migraine.


    The study, which involved giving food intolerance tests to over 8,000 volunteers, found that less than one percent of the participants tested positive for potatoes. "When you consider that each and every person in the UK eats on average 200lb of potatoes a year, this is really quite surprising," said study spokesman Les Rowley. "Whereas some food intolerances appear to be caused by too much of the same food, on a too regular basis, it seems that the potato is the exception to the rule."

    Rowley said he believes the potato causes few problems because it breaks down easily in the digestive system, and added that the three foods which most often cause reactions are cow’s milk, yeast, and egg white.
