I ran across this article, and perhaps wish I had not. Any comments. Maybe NaturistDoc might have something to say.

I have next to no expertise in swimming pool bio-hazards.

I agree with all the author says; the only infection I received recently (1995) came from a hotel hot tub. When I was in high school (~60 years ago) our indoor pool was heavily used and heavily chlorinated - I had so many sinus infections the wise decision was made to keep me out of the pool . Our condominium pool is well managed but often closed for de-contamination because the users (obviously, textilists) don't shower before swimming .

The naturist code of behaviour (shower with shoap before shwimming and don't wear fabric that traps the nasties in the clothing) is a very wise precaution. The outdoor pools at many resorts also benefit from sunlight which helps destroy pathogens.

Even swimming in lakes and the sea can be fraught with danger for naturists (and especially textilists) because of the non-naturist way we treat our water bodies and waterways .

Growing old is mandatory, Growing up is optional. Laughing at yourself is therapeutic.

This is yet another example of the mainstream media’s endless list of disasters which will confront you. As the general safety of society increases people tend to focus their attention on smaller, less probable risks to their health and safety.

The fear of microorganisms is mostly unwarranted. Living on and inside the average human body are approximately 100,000,000,000,000 (one hundred trillion) little critters. Everything in our environment teams with bacteria, viruses, and who knows what else. Only the most minute percentage of them are hazardous to our health.

This doesn’t mean that one should ignore basic hygiene, such as hand washing before eating, but a properly maintained swimming pool is not something that anyone ought to worry about. Of course if you don’t have anything better to do than worry about such things, have at it, knock yourself out.

Not lewd, not crude, just nude.

Nudists are everywhere, but they're hard to identify with their clothes on.

I agree with Bill. This media play on germs is way out of hand. People are so much sterilizing themselves anymore that their bodies cant fight off anything they may catch
