Many people don't like mud. Mud is a kind of nuisance. As soon as it rains, everything is filled with mud and everyone hates it. The mud muddles the shoes, the clothes, the car, the floor, the furniture, and it makes everything ugly.
Mud has a bad reputation. What advantages does this sticky, slippery slick stuff have? What does he have to offer?
It turns out mud is not so bad and even a positive thing. Many studies have shown that it comes in contact with a bit of dirt and bacteria. It is healthy for us and helps build the immune system, unlike living in a sterile environment that makes the body very vulnerable. It is actually living in an environment that is too clean with detergents, less healthy than a life in which they get dirty and occasionally splash in the mud. Mud also has many minerals for skin, and people pay hundreds of dollars to make mud masks and mud baths in the spa.
