What disease is caused by eating raw potato?
You will not get sick if you eat a raw potato that has no green in it. However, there are glycoalkaloids in potatoes that if exposed to light or have aged, will cause a build up of solanine or chaconine. If ingested, solanine can cause cramps, diarrhea, headaches, and in severe cases coma or death. There is no disease, only poisoning caused by eating green, raw potatoes.
