Incredible! Yes, in Mexico, splitting an avocado is common, but in the United States, it has become a problem that has unleashed thousands of severed hands.
For this reason, the Mayo Clinic hospital network launched a tutorial where they teach avocados.
According to Sanj Kakar, a specialist in hand surgery, he said that in recent years they have had to undergo several patients for treatment as a result of the well-known hand cut.
Among the advice they give to leave unharmed when cutting an avocado are:
-Have a sharp knife to not exert more force.
-Make sure that the avocado is ripe or, otherwise, it will be more difficult to split it.
– Make sure to follow the correct technique, and do not cut an avocado without knowing a guide.
The United States is not the only country with difficulties to split avocados. In 2017 it was announced that on average four people per week were treated in British hospitals for this case.
