Pre-pregnancy potato consumption may be linked to gestational diabetes risk
NIH researchers suggest substituting vegetables, whole grain for potatoes

The researchers propose that substituting potatoes with other vegetables, legumes or whole grains may help lower gestational diabetes risk. The findings appear in The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal).
