Does A Potato Threat Your Life? A Case Study

Abstract

The mistakes on consuming the foods that are stored in improper conditions or that are kept longer than what it is supposed to be can cause some of the clinical symptoms from basic to life threatening ones.  We present a case study of a 28 years old patient that came to our clinic with hemodynamic disturbance after eating green potatoes where he/she kept them in a storage to consume them in the winter season. Our discussion based on the fact that the formation of the Solanine toxin which is likely seen on the foods whose natural form changed can cause poisoning.
