From my discussion with Dr Sinatra:

"What about regular white potatoes?I changed my diet to feature potatoes and my blood pressure dropped from 160/90 to 115/65. My hsCRP went from 2.4 to less than 1/10.I did give up meat and dairy but I was never a fan of refined carbs or sugar.With all the success many have with potatoes don't you think its time for Drs Like Joel Fuhrman and Dr William Davis to take another look at the data?"

"I read your reply about high glycemic carbs but the science as well as my personal experience does not back the case for potatoes being anything but healthy.If they are inflammatory why would my hsCRP(and blood pressure) drop so dramatically when I began to eat tons of potatoes.I thought CRP was a measure of inflammation so it would seem potatoes are anti inflammatory.But I agree with you about sugar and processed carbs like chips being inflammatory."
