CORAL GABLES, FL - SEPTEMBER 12: Arlet Lagoa cuts a pizza into slices at Miami's Best Pizza restaurant on September 12, 2014 in Coral Gables, Florida. Reports indicate that milk futures have risen to a record as exports by the U.S. have climbed amid shrinking inventories of cheese and butter, signaling higher costs for pizza and other products made with milk.

Sunday was National Pizza Day and we all LOVE pizza, but did you know that it’s also one of the most dangerous foods out there? The number of hospitalizations in the US involving pizza rocketed by more than 50% in 2018. Whether it was caused by falling upstairs while carrying a delivery or someone slashing a finger with a pizza cutter, there were no fewer than 3,800 visits to the ER two years ago related to our love of pie!

Some of the unfortunate pie-related injuries included a dude poking the roof of his mouth with a fork while eating pizza, a woman swallowing her tongue ring after feasting on a slice and another woman who slipped with a bread knife in her hand while prepping a pizza.
