Carroll Price, People today have a greater desire and the resources for cleanliness than back then. I love showers but find the daily ritual of shaving to be quite time consuming and boring, besides my wife likes the beard

Leonardo for animal rights was way ahead of his time. The other man ahead of his time was Nikola Tesla who predicted the internet only 80 years before it happened.

I can believe the thing about beards harboring TB bacteria, along with millions of other bacteria. Seems strange that humans apparently posses an urge to revert back to unenlightened habits and practices.
