We covered the Five Second Rule a couple years ago. And, just a few weeks ago, colleagues at the New York Times (and many other news sources) wrote about a new study debunking the five second rule. This was not the first such study to argue that there is "no safe time" for food to be left on the floor.


Our continued focus on this "threat" has long baffled me, though. Why are we so worried about the floor? So many things are more dangerous than that. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage

This episode is based on an article Aaron wrote for the New York Times' Upshot column. You can read it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/11/upshot/im-a-doctor-if-i-drop-food-on-the-kitchen-floor-i-still-eat-it.html
