It has nothing to do with your body being in working order or not. They're a bacterial colony that grows on your skin. Like grass growing on a field. The earth does not extrude the grass, and your body doesn't produce the bacteria.

Yes, it does. For the same reason some people are lactose intolerant and some aren't - the body supports the colony. If the body isn't the right environment, the colony will not grow correctly.

You can scrub yourself with sand

My skin's not quite that thick. I don't have standard-issue skin.

Of course, you'd know all this if you read the fucking article.

I read it (skimmed it - wordy garbage). I do not see how that makes every human body genetically uniform.

Yes, and for people whose bodies work 100% to specification, that's true. Don't be surprised if you find out that not everyone's born with a body that's in perfect working order.

Second, many people don't want dirt and grime on them. Soap makes it easier to get rid of. Therefore, most take the acceptable loss of a regular cleaning regimen in return for having clean-looking skin without much scrubbing.

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
