I was thinking about this concept the other night. Wouldn’t doctors be able to learn more about their patient’s health if their patients didn’t shower before coming in for a physical?
It seems like coming in clean eliminates the the value of one of the senses a doctor could use to identify health issues.
Can a doctor learn more about your health from your choice of body soap, shampoo, or natural odors? The answer seems obvious to me.
Of course, that’s only the case of doctors are trained to use their nose. Does that happen?
