‘Avocado Hand’ Is The Horrifying New Trend Injuring People

Are you ever preparing yourself a beautiful salad and ALMOST nick yourself?


Well that’s NOTHING.

Avocado hand is the horrifying injury set to band you with your beloved avocado for WAY longer than you anticipated.

There seems to be a bit of a trend forming, and it’s a pretty silly one.


It seems people are using REALLY sharp knives to de-seed their avocados, and the knives are slipping through the skin of the ‘fruit’- yep, technically avocados are a fruit, well, a berry! - and straight through their hand.


Speaking to the Times, David Shewring, vice-president of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, said: "Recently the health benefits of avocado have been advocated, with an increase in their popularity - and a consequent increase in related injuries."

The worst part? Avocados are so expensive, you’re not only paying for surgery costs, but a WHOLE new avocado, too. No-one has THAT much cash…
