The avocado is actually a type of fruit. Most fruit consists of carbohydrate, while avocado is high in healthy fats.Studies show how the avocado has powerful beneficial effects on health. Also the Avocado just like olive oil, is high in oleic acid and other compounds, which has been shown to prevent cancer. And researchers has found that certain nutrients are absorbed better when eaten with avocado. In a study where participants ate salad with avocados, they absorbed five times the amount of carotenoids than those who did not include avocados. However the price and quality of avocados is very different depending on where in the world you are, I am guessing the avocados in Greenland or Alaska must cost a fortune.
