    Uh, if I drop a raw steak on the floor I will eat it. Not immediately but I wasn`t going to eat it raw in the first place; some drunk jack-ass must`ve knocked me over on the way from the fridge to the grill.

    Eat it. There`s not a lot of difference between the floor, your kitchen bench, or the shelf of the refrigerator in terms of microbial life. Your stomach is designed to handle it. You will eat rancid week-dead worms if you have to, AND survive the experience.

    ...except that if I happen to step in dog poo, I don`t walk on the refrigerator shelf or the kitchen "bench" as you Ozzies apparently call the counter. That being said, I can`t really argue much with these rules.

    "so you could just go through all this or go the easy way:

    Or if it`s longer than 5 seconds, move to the 10 second rule.

    5 second rule

    Which is utterly meaningless. All that matters is what`s on the part of the floor you dropped the food on. You can`t possibly react quickly enough to pick the food up before it becomes contaminated with whatever was on the floor.

    Your body will probably deal with the dirt and bacteria, but that doesn`t mean it isn`t there.

    I`d hope you`d take your shoes off at the door if you stepped in dog poo, actually, instead of tracking it through the house. :\

    Humans! If they weren`t so amusing, you`d shoot them on sight. They won`t eat something because it dropped 3 feet lower than it was and might have `dangerous germs` on it now, but if the Missus lifts her skirt and tells him to get on his knees...

    Personally my rule for things dropped on the floor is:

    If you can`t see it, smell it, taste it, feel it, surely if you can`t hear it, and it isn`t gonna hurt you, who the f*ck cares?

    Even if you stepped in dog crap and then tracked it on the floor, then dropped a food on the floor, you`re not going to taste it and you`re not going to get sick. Get some goddamn immunity.

    Meh, I almost always still eat it if it fell on the floor. Germs ain`t no big deal.

    In fact, there is now some research that suggests that playing outside in the dirt is good for you because it helps you to build a more robust immune system. In my book, eating a few germs off the floor does the same thing.

    Your stomach acids and saliva actually kill off a huge amount of whatever bacteria might be on the food anyway, so unless you have a compromised or unusually weak immune system, it`s probably not worth freaking out about.

    Society is too fixated on hygiene these days. When I was a kid I was making mud-pies and rubbing them in my face. Nowadays every time a kid touches a surface in a public space they`re practically decontaminated with disinfectant wipes by overzealous parents.

    And yet I`m the healthiest guy I know, while the kids I see in the next generation have huge problems with athsma, allergies, the works. Take the cotton wool off, guys.

    Millions of years of evolution has built up our immune system to be able to handle all kinds of microbial attacks. We`re in danger of losing that in a few generations with this hyper-hygienic society we`re building.

    If we keep going, one of these days, the next virus that comes along, whether SARS, Avian Flu, Swine Flu, whatever, really IS going to decimate us, as we`ll have no immune system left to speak of.

    If it`s sticky, no. If its got anything off the floor on it, no. If my dog licks it, no. If it`s outside, no.

    I always blow it before eating it.

    I think you`re right. Nowadays, kids are getting sicker and sicker because their parents are keeping them inside a bubble. They just lose their own body`s defences. It`s like you said: when I was a kid, I used to eat worms and stuff like that; and when I see that my sister (who is 9 years younger than me - she`s 11) gets a cold or anything really small; I just keep healthy. What a shame.

    I`m with Davy! Watch the adverts one day- the amount of stuff we are coerced into buying to keep our homes `hygenic` and smelling good ( ie of chemicals) by feeding our paranoia about infection. This is a billion pound industry that has been created.

    If it doesn`t have anything like lint or noticeable dirt stuck to it, and I saw it drop, I`m eating it....

    WITH the exception of my workplace floor. Because I know exactly what`s going on in there. I don`t care if I just saw that carpet steam-cleaned. DX

    Davy: Nowadays every time a kid touches a surface in a public space they`re practically decontaminated with disinfectant wipes by overzealous parents.

    Every excuse to add a new law nowadays includes "Think of the kids!". We`ve virtually wrapped our kids in bubble wrap, And expect they`ll never get a bruise, cut, or abrasion. It`s turning them into spoiled, Jello spined, Weak willed, drop out quitters that suck off their parents teet till they are in their thirties.

    I understand the parental instinct to protect their kids, But kids need to be free to explore the boundaries of their abilities. Not smothered to death and treated like a trophy on a shelf.

    I`ll play Devil`s advocate:

    Food poisoning is a major health issue. Many ill, some die. Even with uncompromised immune systems. The human immune system is pretty good, but it`s nowhere near that of, for example, a dog.

    There is evidence for and against the hygiene hypothesis. There is also evidence for a genetic component in allergy. Environmental can`t be ruled out either - the modern world is quite diiferent to that of even 50 years ago.

    Even if you think the hygiene hypothesis is correct, you should know that it doesn`t apply to adults. So it has no bearing on whether or not you should eat food that`s been on the floor.
