The Dangers of Avocado Hand

Breaking news folks.

So we’ve brought you news about the Avolatte. We covered the diet avocadoand even the trendy avocado toast bar in San Fran. It’s all been fun and games, but it’s time for us to get real.
We’re talking about Avocado Hand.

Come again?

Avocado hand: the condition that is taking Europe by storm. People are seriously injuring themselves during the process of peeling and slicing the millennial’s favorite delicacy. There are up to 4 cases per week of nerve and tendon damage from opening avocados.

Tutorials are popping up everywhere teaching folks how to peel and slice one safely. Some people even believe warning labels should be added.

Threat or nah?

Okay okay, we get it, accidents happen. But let’s be real–  brushing up on your basic knife skills could prevent any future avocado-related ER trips.

If all else fails, just buy Wholly Guacamole and call it a day.
