Potatoes are grown in over 100 countries all around the world and the countries that grow the most are China, USA, India, Russia, and Ukraine. Despite being so popular, potatoes aren’t believed to be very healthy and are even considered dangerous for your body. But maybe this is just a stereotype created by chips, French fries, and fast food.
1. A small history lesson
Potatoes are from sunny South America and there, even today, you can still find some kinds of potatoes that are wild. Potatoes were first used in the area of modern day Bolivia between 8000 and 5000 BC. By the way, cats were domesticated at about the same time.
