Was listening to a parasitologist on the radio. He said not bathing is a mistake as (due to "migrations") more N. Americans now harbour parasitic infections of the skin, many passed on in schools, health clubs. Not bathing creates a more suitable environment for the parasites to breed, leading to worse infestations and secondary infections. The infestations if allowed to become much worse can be difficult to eradicate, because some of the chemicals used have side effects.

There is also a counter theory that washing too much is the cause of
many of today's illnesses. The continual use of soap, disinfectants,
etc. means the body doesn't get used to the dirt-problems (including
asthma). They say children should be allowed to do things like play in
the mud to help build up their immune tolerances.

No idea what any of this has to do with actors though. My mother
doesn't like the New Zealand "actor" Sam Neill and says he always looks
like grubby old beggar who needs a good wash.

Yes, I've heard the theories on allergies. While there is no doubt the immune system is strengthened by exposure to some pathogens, the jury is out on allergies.
