Is the “5-Second Rule” Safe For Dropping Food?

Rock 96.7′s very own Tee Roy and myself were eating yesterday and by chance, something hit the floor. The two of us being men, the 5-Second Rule came into play. But now that I’m older (and I don’t actually know when the last time our office floors were cleaned), I don’t trust that. I’ve always been more of a 3-second or less rule person myself, but even that seems a bit sketchy. So like most people in our day and age, I took to the internet for an easy answer.

Did you know, 50% of men actually follow the 5-Second Rule, but 70% of women do? And here’s another shocking statistic: over 75% of our shoes have fecal matter on them (yes… dung, sh*t, poo, feces, etc.) and our feet touch the floor many times daily. Guess what else also has fecal matter on it a high percentage of the time? Currency (bills) and ATM/credit cards, so I hope you wash your hands before you eat.

After watching the above video… I’m positive I’ll never eat anything off the floor again (not that I was in the habit of doing it anyway).
