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.
