Personal hygiene

Hello. It's definitely been too long since I was active here. I have so many ideas for posts and I'm going to get back to some schedule of mine here. Not to have a long, intro...
I'm not going to talk about my personal hygiene (cause why would I), but I'm going to talk about other people and how it is viewed. To make this clear, I'm going to talk about why is it important, for example, for me that my friends have a good personal hygiene. It's not. I could totally end this post here, but I see so many people raging about somebody else having a bad personal hygiene. I honestly don't care. It shouldn't bother me if my friends didn't brush their teeth, if they didn't shower after gym, if they didn't wash their hands and so on. Their hygiene is their own and, unless they're serving me meal with hands that have been in mud, I don't care what they do with their body. Maybe I'm just more tolerant to odors and filth than other people, but I'm not disgusted by these.
I'll give you just one example of my hygiene. I don't wash my hands before every meal. Shock! I know. If I'm serving somebody meal with my hands (e.g. a sandwich or something like that), I'll always wash my hands because of them. But if I'm eating alone, I can plant flowers in my garden and go and eat with those same hands. I'm not a germaphobe and I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with me. If anything, my lifestyle (sounds like I live in dirt and never shower which is not true haha) made me more resistant to germs and illnesses.
This also bugs me when people keep their small children away from all dirt. I'm not saying you should place your new born kid in mud and leave it there for a week, but as soon as they're ready (I'm not sure so I'll say few weeks/months?), let them be. They can go around on the dusty floors and they can get dirty and nothing will happen.
Back to my story. I don't get why people comment on how some people didn't shower or how they have yellow teeth. That information doesn't concern you in any way. If you're repulsed by the smell or something else, just move away.
P.S. I also don't have a problem with eating food that fell on the floor (and not following the 5 second rule which is, by the way, total bulls*it).
What are your opinions on this topic? I'd really like to know since it's a bit controversial...
