Yeah, it may seem silly at first but cases of avocado hand are growing by the handful. Doctors are seeing more and more patients through the emergency room doors suffering from deep lacerations to the hand because of avocado slicing. Experts believe that many avocado enthusiasts are misjudging the ripeness of their avocados and are slicing through the fruit and into their hands leaving them injured.
Avocados are at their most popular level ever and the price is soaring. Along with this craze over healthy fats comes injuries. There is no other sure fire way to ruin your avocado good time than slicing open your hand while you’re anticipating a delicious treat!
Honestly, this has happened to me. Luckily, I didn’t cut myself deep enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room but it was close. I happen to be an expert with bandaids, peroxide and cut ointment so I was able to salvage the cut before my avocado went bad.
Finally, if you’re going to be slicing avocados, whether it’s for guacamole, toast, tacos, a salad or just to eat by the slice, you need to watch yourself and avoid avocado hand.
