The 5-second rule
The idea that food is safe to eat off the floor if you pick it up quickly is not accurate.
A study showed that in some cases, bacteria takes less than a second to transfer to food. The longer food was allowed to stay on a surface, the more bacteria was transferred to the food. The higher the moisture, the higher the risk of transfer.
I am a sucker for gadgets, stubborn and curious. Eating right and sleeping well is important to me.
