The legend is true....
Today is a big day for those who often find themselves picking food up off the floor before shouting 'FIVE SECOND RULE'.
Scientists have said that if you drop food on the floor you can eat it within five seconds and it will be fine. The food won't pick up any extra bacteria in that time.
Anthony went on to say "Obviously, food covered in visible dirt shouldn’t be eaten, but as long as it’s not obviously contaminated, the science shows that food is unlikely to have picked up harmful bacteria from a few seconds spent on an indoor floor."
If you drop food on the floor, remember you have 5 seconds to rescue it!
