Since I was a kid I’ve always heard that every time the kids food dropped down on the floor and someone said pick it up before 5 seconds pass. I didn’t pay any attention to it, because I didn’t know the reason why they tell that to the kids. Then I found out later that if the food dropped down on the floor and you pick it up before 5 seconds laps, then the food can’t catch any germs. But hey!!! be careful because just now while I was browsing on the Internet I found an article regarding that and now I know for a fact that this belief is a myth with no fact. This is one of the 4 common health myths which sometimes people believe. To know the 4 common health myths just click this link.
