NO MORE FIVE SECOND RULE!
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Thereís an old wives tale out
there called the five-second rule. The old wives tale says that food remains
edible if itís been on the ground for just five seconds or less. Unfortunately,
this is not true; well, if you donít want to risk getting sick that is! The fact
is, if there are bacteria on the floor that the food drops on, it doesnít matter
if the food is there for five seconds, ten seconds, or two seconds, your food
will contain potentially hazardous bacteria.
Does your floor contain bacteria? Probably. It
doesnít matter how well you clean your floor, itís likely that your floor
contains bacteria. Itís worth noting that the moister the food is that you drop
on the floor the more bacteria it will pick up. Should you eat the food off the
floor? Probably not, but the five second rule will continue to live on. And,
more likely than not, no one will be worse for the wear.
