“Just one Potato in the Kitchen” has killed the entire family in Russia!

Why it is toxic after some time??? The poison is found throughout the plant, but especially in green potatoes and new sprouts. Never eat potatoes that are spoiled or green below the skin. Always throw away the sprouts. Potatoes that are not green and have had any sprouts removed are safe to eat. Never store potatoes for long time or for the other season, as the story we’ve just red is much enough to give us a lesson that a single mistake can take lives of a whole family without any warning.
