Dr. Chip, can taking a bath once every 10 days and wearing the same clothing for a long duration of time be hazardous to one's health?
Interesting question. Assuming that one stays relatively clean as in not getting covered with dirt or chemicals and the clothing stays relatively clean then there is no hazard to one's health. Routine bathing or showering just removes the usual particles in the air that we accumulate on our skin, but the act of bathing or showering itself is not necessary for health.
