That is a polite way of saying that I'm somewhat of a slob at times.
Seriously though. The human body is really adaptable. The Immune System is just like a muscle. The more excercise it gets, the stronger it gets.
Cleanliness is a good thing, but taken to an extreme it can weaken the system so that when the really nasty stuff hits you you have little or no defense.
That is my take on it anyway.
