Potatoes may trigger diabetes

By Helen Tobler, Medical reporter
June 09, 2003

AUSTRALIAN researchers have found that mothers who eat vegetables such as potatoes and turnips when pregnant could increase their child's risk of developing diabetes.

It has long been suspected that there is an environmental trigger for type 1 diabetes, but only now have researchers found a possible cause.

The culprit is bafilomycin, a toxin found in some bacteria called streptomyces that infect vegetables such as potatoes, sugar beets, turnips and radishes.
