Is the 5 Second Rule True
Is the 5 Second Rule True? Will you eat food once it's hit the floor?
Researchers from Aston University in the UK say it does exist. They tested several different foods: toast, pizza, etc... that touched the floor and left them there for different time lengths to see what bacteria's they pick up. The longer they sat the more bacteria they picked up.
They also learned that 87% percent of us will eat something after it hits the floor with-in 5 seconds and of those 87, 55% were women.
Have you or will you eat something off the floor? I can say that I have but it depends where I'm at. If I'm at home or my parents house, I'm ok with it. At work or anywhere public, NO WAY!
