A new study out of Aston University in Birmingham, England finds that dropped food is completely safe even it if surpasses the “five-second rule." As long as the food doesn’t pick up “visible” dirt you should be fine. When dropped on both, laminate and carpet, all of the tested items picked up germs well below what is considered an “infections dose,” which is around 10,000 and the numbers barely changed the longer they sat on the floor.
Even with this new revelation, which items are still "dead to you" the second they hit the floor?
Comment on Facebook or tweet the item #DeadToMe.
