Have you ever eaten off of the floor? Be honest I don’t judge. If you have its okay because 50% of adults and children have eaten off of the floor. Most people do the five second rule.
Scientist Donald Schaffner discovered that it is not wise to do the five second rule with wet food. You’re probably wondering why is it not wise. It is not wise because when you drop wet food the food picks up bacteria from the floor as soon as it falls. Donald Schaffner says “The wetter the food is the more bacteria it picks up
. A man named Anthony Hilton also studies the five second rule. Hilton says that dry food pics up less bacteria than wet food but still picks up a little of bacteria. He also found that carpeted floors pick up fewer bacteria than tile or wood floors.
If you drop food on the floor it is a wiser choice to leave it there but if you really want it then you can have it.
