As avocado popularity is on the rise, hospitals are seeing more and more instances of "avocado hand." It's a funny nickname for a gruesome injury.
"Avocado Hand" is when someone is slicing an avocado in their hand and stabs themselves with the knife. It can cause major damage to nerves and tendons and can require extensive reconstructive surgery.
Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman is the latest victim of Avocado Hand. She needed reconstructive surgery after she slashed her fingers cutting into an avocado. “Successful surgery! Tendons and nerves have been reunited,” she revealed on social media.
Seriously guys, when you're cutting an avocado use a cutting board! Never hold it in your hand!
