I was a very dirty kid growing up. Always outdoors, and had the worst hygienic habits for years. Didn't even see a certain Physician til I was trying out for Track & Field in High School. Oddly, I never got sick easy, and got better sooner than everyone around me. Maybe the over sterilization pandemic is what is the cause of so many inner city people getting sick. I know it disgust me how so many over emphasis the importance of anti-bacterial sanitation, but don't put a limit to how much they recommend patients to use on a day to day basis.
Same here. We used to play outside for hours. I can only recall visiting the doc once as a child. I was never ill. If I wanted a day off school, I had to pretend to have stomach ache.
