Many of our earliest memories revolve around admonishments to stay clean and tidy— Clean your room. Pick up after yourself. Wash behind your ears! Concepts of cleanliness have been with us since the beginning. The term “hygiene” comes to us from the Greek goddess of health, Hygieia. The ancient Romans pioneered public health with aqueducts, communal baths and complex sewer systems.
