Science Upholds 5-Second Rule

Scientific research upholds if you pick up dropped food quickly, you’re more likely to be safe from harmful bacteria

Of course I never cook, I only go eat at other restaurants (not entirely true, but mostly) however I am taking note of research from Aston University and their School of Life and Health Sciences.

Also surprising from the research, although this ‘rule’ is entirely anecdotal, the research found 87% of people surveyed said they would eat food dropped on the floor, or already have done so.
