THE ‘FIVE-SECOND RULE’
Most people believe in the five-second rule, which apparently states that once a food item falls on the floor, you have five seconds to pick it up before germs attach themselves on it. This is clearly a false notion and shouldn’t be believed. The germs and bacteria remain around us all the time, including the floors of your house. So, the moment you drop that last pizza slice on the ground, it is gone! Forget it and move on if you don’t want to be affected by harmful germs that can cause some serious illness.
