The TRUTH Behind "The 5 Second Rule"

One of society's biggest myths have FINALLY be debunked! 

The 5 Second Rule, is it safe?

The answer is YES... Kind of. 

 

Researchers at the University of Aston say:

"The amount of time spent on the floor isn't a factor in the bacterial transfer for dry foods. Foods like biscuits, chocolate, chips and even sandwiches can be eaten from the floor for up to 30 minutes (with little increased risk of germs).

"But, when it comes to moist foods like pasta, fries, doughnuts, or toast, the five-second rule is still worth sticking to as moist foods transfer more bacteria if left for more than five seconds.

 

So there you have it!

Drop the chip, get the dip... Drop the pasta, put it in the trasha!
