This is ridiculous. I keep seeing news articles and social media articles about “Avocado Hand.” Apparently so many people are getting injured cutting avocados that first-response doctors have given the injury the nickname of Avocado Hand. I remember a co-worker about 10 years ago who sliced her hand open trying to cut an avocado. She had to be rushed to the hospital. But it has literally become a worldwide phenomenon. The New York Times actually published an article with instructions and a video demonstrating the proper technique. I eat a healthy number of avocados, and I don’t see what the problem is. Use common sense. Don’t hold the avocado in your hand while slicing into it. Just be careful out there, folks…
