The human body can provide places for disease-causing germs and parasites to grow and multiply. These places include the skin and in and around the openings of the body. It is however less likely that germs and parasites will get inside the body if people are not very conscious of their hygiene.
The food we eat, the way we keep our bodies and environment clean and how often and efficiently we exercise all play great roles in maintaining good health. Many diseases develop due to lack of personal hygiene. All these diseases can be prevented by practicing cleanliness.
The concept of hygiene dates back to the time when ‘first man’ moved into the caves to protect himself from the forces of nature that acts against his survival. Our parents, even before our school days, taught us the importance of hygiene. Therefore, the concept of hygiene as an art is as old as the history of mankind, although currently it has been recognized as a science of its own.
