Donna DuBerg with Saint Louis University talks about why we shouldn't double dip and ways to avoid it.
"Double-dipping - either three or six times - transferred, on average, 10,000 bacteria from mouth to dip. It would take only a few renegade double-dippers at a party to turn an appetizing bowl of dip into a molecular weapon."
The bacterial population of food dips increased due to the practice of "double-dipping," and that dip type can influence the dip's bacterial population.
