Why we cant eat potato raw?
You can eat raw potatoes. They have a starchier taste than cooked potatoes and have a hearty crunch! Actually, the tubers of the potato plant are somewhat poisonous in their raw state due to an alkaloid called solanine. Excessive intake of raw potatoes can cause liver, heart, and gastrointestinal damage.

Can you get sick from eating raw potatoes?
If the potatoes are growing (have a green tinge) then they are poisonous and are not fit for anything except growing or composting. If you have an regularly unhealthy diet, then you may get stomach aches. If the potatoes look unhealthy, then it is probably not safe to eat. Otherwise, no, you can't get sick from eating raw potatoes.
