Just in case you don’t have enough to worry about, you can add “Avocado Hand” to your list.
You’re Welcome 🙂

Avocados are so dangerous, they may soon carry a warning label in the UK.
Amateur cooks just can’t seem to slice up the fruit — a staple of brunch fare and Mexican food — without also chopping into their hands, according to a report from the Times of London.
British surgeons have seen such a spike in the number of people who seriously injure themselves while trying to penetrate avocados’ rubbery skin and remove its finicky pit that they’ve dubbed the condition “avocado hand.”….
“We don’t want to put people off the fruit, but I think warning labels are an effective way of dealing with this,” surgeon Simon Eccles told the Times of London. “Perhaps we could have a cartoon picture of an avocado with a knife, and a big red cross going through it?”
Yeah, because nothing says “appetizing” like a picture of a knife and a red cross.
