Survey Says: A New Study Says the Five-Second Rule is True

Scientists for years have scoffed at the idea of the five-second rule and deemed it a myth, but a new survey finds out it is actually true.

According to Gizmodo, scientific evidence from a study conducted at Aston University in Birmingham, England found that time does make a difference in how bacteria transfers from the floor to food.

As long as you get it off the floor in five or six second, it should be okay.

The research also found carpet transfers the least bacteria to your food, laminate and tiled surfaces transfer the most, and wet foods like ice cream pick up more bacteria than dry food.

87% of people say they would eat food they dropped on the floor if they picked it up quickly.  Women are more likely to do it than men.
