Nude Healthfulness

Although there are certainly times when some sort of clothing is truly beneficial and healthful (to protect from hazardous substances, to protect from extreme cold, to protect from extreme heat, etc.), I believe being nude is how our bodies were designed to function best.

Balls need to be about two degrees Fahrenheit (about one degree Celsius) lower than body temperature to produce healthy, living, viable, sperm. The bag in which balls hang is designed to stretch out and tighten up in order to regulate their temperature. Clothing tends to hamper that temperature regulation. The more restrictive the clothing, the more likely the bag will not be able to do its job properly.

Our bodies have an excellent cooling system that also works best when we are nude. Sweat glands excrete water into the surface of our skin. Evaporative cooling reduces body temperature. Clothing renders that system ineffective.

Foot fungus requires a warm, dark, moist environment in order to live and thrive. Shoes and socks provide that exact environment -- almost as if their true purpose were to promote foot fungus. Someone who rarely, if ever, wears shoes has essentially no concern about foot fungus.

Having you body open to free air exchange (sans clothing) greatly reduces the possibility of fungal skin infections anywhere/everywhere on your body.

Vitamin D is synthesized right on the surface of our skin in the presence of ultraviolet light. Given adequate sun exposure, skin will synthesize approximately 1,000 IU of vitamin D per minute for up to twenty minutes -- 20,000 IU of vitamin D per day. Skin color influences the rate at which vitamin D is synthesized -- lighter faster; darker slower. Clothing prevents vitamin D synthesis. The majority of the US population routinely wears clothing when out of doors; the majority of the US population is vitamin D deficient. This is a causal relationship.

Getting your full amount of vitamin D each day results in a stronger immune system and stronger bones. Vitamin D regulates over three-hundred processes in your body.

Seeing yourself and others nude promotes a better more healthful body image.

Clothing collects pathogens that can impact your body's microbiome, requiring regular cleaning.

In societies where running water isn't available, nudity is about the only way to stay reasonably healthy.
