Myth: The five-second rule. If you drop a piece of food on the ground and pick it up within 5 seconds, you can still eat it.
True or False?
False! Germs and bacteria can get on your snack as soon as it hits the ground. Make sure to wash it or throw it out if it falls to the ground – no matter how delicious.
