Meh. I'm not a guy and have no issues with dry or irritated skin. Since I'm not worried about any of the side effects of showering, I'll keep enjoying a daily shower.

IF I lived in a place where water was rationed, I could easily get by with a shower every other day. If I lived in a dwelling with no AC then it would be harder. I'm a quick showerer, so I doubt if I'd save much with a PTA.

No way could I go a day without a bath/shower....even if I'm not dirty or stinky! I LIKE bathing!
Sitting in a tub of fluoridated water?

So you don't shower because of contaminated bath water, hmm, how do you deal with the acid rain, dirty sweat and other contaminants you get daily on your body?

Possibly you think you don't need frequent showers because you have become accustomed to your own body odor and don't realize how smelly you have become? You might ask an acquaintance - not someone you live with, because that person might no longer notice how you smell.

If you are worried about dry, irritated skin, use a gentle soap, and then follow up with lotion if necessary. If you don't drink the water, you won't be impacted by the chemicals in it. Use grab rails and bath mats to make the tub or shower more safe...

You seem to spend a lot of time obsessing about things. Maybe you need to get a real hobby or something? Make some friends, read to school children - do something!

Fluoridation: 2. What happens to fluoride in your body?

"Water used for washing may also contain fluoride. There is no data on fluoride absorption through the skin, but the fluoride ion will not readily pass through the skin and this pathway is not likely to contribute to people’s fluoride intake."


Fluoride is naturally present in water. Too little contributes to tooth decay. Too much during childhood can cause staining of teeth. There is a dosage sweet spot where teeth are protected while staining is avoided.

People who do not bathe get used to their own B.O. Friends and coworkers may notice but not say anything.

Washing the smelly bits only takes more effort than just taking a shower.

I sent a sample of my tap water for testing and the stuff was riddled with chemicals, including tons of dihydrogen monoxide!!! It was in my friend's water too and she ended up with cancer. Those people who tell us there are no chemicals in our food, drink or homes are lying!!!

Yes, it's true that "F" is naturally occurring but not the STUFF added to public waters...it's waste from aluminum and lead and fertilizer plants. There is no sweet spot for everyone who consumes public waters and foods irrigated with public waters. Everyone drinks various amounts of tap water and many do not drink any of it...but MOST drink tap water in the U.S.

It was meant for babies forming their teeth not for grown adults and their organs and joints.
