Do You Eat Food off the Floor?

The so-called ‘3 second-rule’ for dropped food is correct, according to some scientists.

Germ expert Professor Anthony Hilton:

“Eating food that has spent a few moments on the floor can never be entirely risk-free. 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.”

This survey of 2,000 people ... found a whopping 79% of us admit to eating food that has fallen on the floor.

Carpets, perhaps surprisingly, are the most risk-free surface when it comes to the transfer of bacteria from floor to food. Tiles and laminate floors carry greater risks.

But other people don’t agree with the findings ...
