How does the 5 second rule affect food?Health and Wellness
- Ms. Lauryn Lyons
The project is to see how much bacteria will grow on food in 5 seconds, even after you have ""cleaned"" it. I chose this project because my sister dropped food on the floor and it gave me the idea. My overall conclusion is that even if you think your floor is clean, bacteria can still adhere to food in a matter of seconds. The project is important to see if it's safe for people to eat food off the ground. If they do, there is a possibility they could get sick.
