RE: Potatoes or Potato Myth

I was told that the reason that potatoes turn green is photosynthesis is taking place. But a lone time ago... in the 70's we were told it was because "they" were radiating them.
I know you should not store potatoes in the frig as it causes the starch to... do something...??? and then they are not good for blood sugar. Can cause bigger spikes as the starch is more condensed.
And of course the worst thing you can do is to deep fry them. If the grease doesn't get you there is something that causes cancer that changes in the potato from the high temp. Also... I think that is true of baking potatoes at too high a temp. Like anything over 450 is too high.
If I have this wrong someone else chime in here. This is just what I heard.
I like them quartered, oven roasted at 350, with some mixed blend spices on them.
