W​hat do you think of the 5 second Rule?
  • 5​ seconds? I'll still eat it after 50 minutes
  • I wouldn't follow it religiously, if it's something good I'd be fine with a minute
  • 5​ seconds is okay, but I wouldn't want to push it much further
  • I​ count 5 seconds and then, ONLY THEN, would I still go for it
  • E​w no way! I'd only eat it if I managed to catch it on the way down

  • There is no reason for a 5 second rule if you have 3 second dogs 🙄

  • It was proven wrong on ‘Mythbusters’ years ago, if anyone had any doubts. The floor is filthy so just don’t.

  • My daughter and her friend did an experiment for the 5 second rule for science fair. They dropped wet food and dry food on clean floor and dirty floor, in different combinations, then swabbed the food and put the swab in petri dishes. All dishes had disgusting bacterial growth after only a couple of days.

  • Never! Obviously unless it's like a raw fruit or veg I can wash off and peel

    • That is a very valid point. Washable = good to go

  • I'm not going to eat something that falls on a public surface but off a floor at home maybe.
