A sauna isn't a hot tub. At least not in Finland. It's sweating in a hot room.

But controlling for socioeconomic level and prior indications of health and healthy lifestyle should be considered. Maybe the reason why some Finns get to the sauna more often is because they're healthy enough to get out, or have time enough to get out.

Or maybe sweating in a hot room improves circulation, promotes healing and shoves the balance of microorganisms that colonize your skin in a healthier direction.

Maybe it just kills one kind of mite that's been plaguing humanity since the dawn of time and nobody knows it's harmful.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
