    Yes it is, the skin of potato's are supposed to hold lots of nutrients for you.  So eat up.

    Of course not. Since it is clean, with no need to worry, you'll only be improving your health if you do!

    It is more then okay to eat them occasionally. I know some people do no really like the flavor of the skin. The skin is very good for you full of nutrients and antioxidants.

    This question reminds me of an episode of "Its Always sunny in Philadelphia". The one where they were peeling apples.

    Yes, it's OK to eat the skin of a baked potato provided that the potato is clean enough to be baked.The skin enhances the taste of potato.

    from what i understand, it's the healthiest part of a potato so i would say it's a darn good idea.

    There are great nutrients in the skin. I always leave the peel on a potato even when having mashed. I wrote a hub on this subject.

    Yes, you can eat the skin of a baked potato and it is good for you. The skin has a lot of nutrients in it . You can eat the skin as often as you like.

    Of course it is okay... I suggest you try a plate of baked potato skins covered in low fat cheddar cheese, and then served with light sour cream and chives.

    Yes, the skin is fine to eat.  I don't eat it very much because it is not my favorite.
