Is the "apple of the earth" bad for you? Potatoes, the go-to starch for many Americans, can add pounds over time, a new Harvard study reveals.  In fact one extra serving "was found to cause more weight gain than downing an additional 12-ounce can of a sugary drink or taking an extra helping of red or processed meats."
