1:20 The benefits of not showering

James Hamblin has stopped washing. At first he got very smelly. But then things started to change.

James Hamblin is a senior editor at The Atlantic - he'd been working on a series about the microbiome, about the bacteria that lives on us, and how we mess with that by washing ourselves so often, and using chemical laden detergents and soaps.

So he decided to forgo washing or using deodorant. He tells Jesse Mulligan what happened.
