Are Potatoes Getting a Raw Deal?

Idaho Governor Butch Otter is tired of seeing potatoes get a bad rap.

Several studies, including one recently by the New England Journal Of Medicine, finds eating potatoes regularly contributes to weight gain.

Governor Otter says he's disappointed that one of the most nutrient-dense and affordable vegetables are being singled out when eating just about anything irresponsibly will make you fat.

He goes on to say "that americans don't need another fad diet to waste millions of dollars on while continuing to gain weight, and raising inflammatory allegations about a food as pure and natural as a potato is counterproductive."
