How to clean the avocado without hurting your hands


Source: NPR

Marks and Spencer recently introduced a new variety of avocado: a seedless fruit that is already gaining popularity in Europe. Perhaps this is due to publications in the British press dedicated to a new type of injury, the “avocado hand,” writes NPR.

“Avocado hand” is a characteristic injury resulting from the wrong technique of peeling a healthy fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!). Doctors in the UK are reporting an ever-increasing number of trauma visits related to injuries from peeling avocados. “This is too high a price for an Instagram-style brunch,” as said Independent.


David Ward, president of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, says: The Avocado Arm can lead to surgery because people damage important nerves and tendons. This may require reconstructive surgery, and in the worst case, leave you unable to use your arm. ” In New Zealand, a government accident compensation company has paid more than $ 53 in total to people affected by avocado incidents.

Maybe cocktail avocado is the way out? However, the novelty grows only in Spain and only in December. As a rule, it is used only by chefs of expensive restaurants. What to do? Try to learn how to clean the avocado, without hurting your hands.
