I remember my grandmother eating raw potatoes; I can remember being a small child and wondering how in the world she could peel a potato, eat a slice, peel a potato, eat a slice... In her early sixties, she was diagnosed as severely anemic. Many years later, when I heard the condition "pica" associated with potatoes (also associated with eating dirt, especially clay), I decided it wasn't a coincidence.'
Is it even remotely possible you aren't getting enough A? C? Iron?
From what I'm gathering, as I'm reading the same google results, is that as long as you feel like you feel good and can digest them well enough, it's no big deal eating them raw... The inhibitor is there, and -can- cause a problem digesting protein... but if it isnt coming up or out the backside you're a-ok.
