There are many people around the world who are literally obsessed with their personal hygiene. Usually, we refer to them as “germaphobes”. This type of people wash their hands every 5 minutes just because they believe germs and bacteria are here to harm them. But how about people who have completely neglected personal hygiene and even think of it as pointless.
There is a man who claims he has not taken a bath for more than 60 years. The Iranian news agency called IRNA recently reported the case of the 80-year-old Amoo Hadji. The man claims he holds the record for surviving the longest time without taking a shower or a bath. Mr. Hadji lives in the city of Farashband situated in the Fars province of Iran. He leads a reasonably simple, even primitive life. Hadji has a strange habit of feeding off dead animals and his most expensive and prized possession is his 3-inch-wide steel pipe. Nobody has a clue why he decided to stop bathing but he doesn’t seem to miss it at all. Although his skin has become scaly and his eyes barely visible, Amoo Hadji is one happy man.
