The "5-Second Rule" Rules

The "5-Second Rule" Rules: "Researchers at the University of Illinois say the so-called '5-Second Rule' isn't a myth. They say when you drop food on the floor, it's still safe to eat if you pick it up within five seconds.

That's because it takes at least that long for germs to devour dropped food. Sticky food though, will pick up bacteria faster than dry food."
