Nasty film on my hands after cutting butternut squash

You guys are correct. This is NOT a reaction. It happens with summer squash and cucumbers too. Try cutting up enough to make pickles or anything else. I even tried emailing Martha Stewart and got no answer at all. I tried picking small bits off with tweezers and it was terrible! I even got a steel wool pad and tried scrubbing it off to no avail. I also had to wear it off. Sigh.
