May 16, 2017

Thousands of people have fell victim to it, including Meryl Streep in 2012.  While promoting the movie, Hope Sings, her left hand and left pinky finger were covered in a white bandage.  Curiosity lead to her alerting the world she had slice her hand while cutting an avocado.  She is in good company as emergency rooms are seeing an increase of avocado-injured hands; so much many are calling it a Guacalypse. The popularity of Avocados has never been higher and so are the injuries.  One doctor said that he sees four patients a week for serious cuts to the hand that were caused by attempting to remove the pit or peel it. Avoid becoming a statistic and make sure you’re using a flat surface and run the knife gently through the skin and around the pit of the avocado and then carefully remove the pit with a towel.
