OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says even before the pandemic, she was not the biggest fan of eating cake after someone had blown out the candles, and Dr. Andrew Ordon agrees, adding, "It's disgusting."
The Doctors notes as you blow out candles a large amount of bacteria is expelled from the body and can land on the cake, despite this, studies have shown eating cake after someone has blown out birthday candles does not typically lead to illness. "The chances of transmitting something is pretty darn low," Dr. Ordon says.
As for cake covers which allow you to use candles while shielding the food, The Doctors say this is a cleaner and more hygienic way to still enjoy your birthday candles.
