Ah, the avocado. The fruit of champions and hipsters alike. This little fruit has grown exponentially in popularity the last few years with people loving its flexibility, but it has a dark side. 

Many have complained about its tough exterior and the difficulty of cutting it - so much so that according to Newstalk there's now a condition called "avocado hand" - yep, seriously. 

There has reportedly been a rise in people who have gotten serious injuries after trying to cut the fruit. 

Some peeps have even needed plastic surgery after the injuries inflicted by this sneaky little green delight.

Take care with your fruit, guys, you could be the next victim of 'avocado hand'.

Or y'know, just have a pizza.
