Doctor who hasn’t used soap in FOUR YEARS leaves This Morning viewers baffled as he insists he DOESN’T smell and claims products are a ‘waste of money’

  • Dr James Hamblin, from New York, hasn’t used soap or similar products in years
  • Instead the medic cleans himself with just water and insists he no longer smells
  • But viewers weren’t convinced by James and were left puzzled by the interview 

A doctor who hasn’t used soap in four years has left viewers puzzled after insisting that he doesn’t smell.

Dr James Hamblin, from New York, who appeared on This Morning today, uses water to clean himself and washes his hands, and claims after a while, his body’s ecosystem reached a steady state, and he stopped smelling bad. 

But viewers weren’t convinced by the doctor, with several suggesting that someone who doesn’t shower must smell.

When asked by host Ruth Langsford:  ‘Have you had a shower this morning?’, he said: ‘I have not. I got my hair a little wet and combed it but not a proper shower in any sense.’ 

He went on: ‘I do [smell good]. It took a while to get used to, but I don’t smell. 

‘I’m told and I have asked people and asked them to be honest with me, do I smell? And they tell me no and my wife says the same.’ 

When asked why he quit using soap, he said: ‘It was part of an experiment that I was doing and part of trying to become a little bit minimalistic. At the same time, I was learning about the skin microbium.

The doctor went on to claim the link between ‘morality and cleanliness’ came long before it’s association with health 

‘It turns out there’s millions of microbes all over you. So I thought, why are we washing it up in the first place? If there’s something that might be helpful to us. 

 ‘I thought well maybe we shouldn’t be washing them off so much and I started to experiment. I still wash my hands, but no body wash or lotion.’   

The doctor went on to claim the link between ‘morality and cleanliness’ came long before it’s association with health. 

Reaction: Viewers were left puzzled by the doctor, with one saying: ‘What have I just tuned into?’

He said: ‘In religion, there’s a lot of ideas about clean and purity, with your character to morality, long before there was any association with health.’ 

He added: ‘If I need to look presentable in a short time I would hop in the shower and just rinse with water, you can do that real quick and easily.’ 

Viewers were left puzzled by the doctor, with one saying: ‘What have I just tuned into? “The doctor who hasn’t showered in four years”. Does he want a medal or something?’

Another wrote: ‘Watching #ThisMorning and seeing some American doctor who hasn’t showered in four years – and that’s enough tv for today.’

A third added: ‘Wished I’d finished eating my bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes before seeing ‘”he Doctor who hasn’t showered in four years” piece #ThisMorning.’
