Some might call them vain, but fans of pubic hair removal have a new argument for their painful habit: stopping the spread of crabs. Doctors in the U.S. and Australia have seen a dramatic decline in the number of people affected by pubic lice in the past decade since the style of grooming known as a Brazilian wax has gained popularity.
Pubic lice, crab-shaped insects which suck on the blood of hosts that most often make their home in pubic hair, have been with humans for thousands of years. But an increased focus on hair removal has curbed cases of lice dramatically. In Australia, Sydney's largest sexual health clinic has not seen a case of pubic lice among women since 2008, according to Bloomberg.
"It used to be extremely common; it's now rarely seen," Basil Donovan, head of sexual health at the University of New South Wales and a physician at the Sydney Sexual Health Centre, told Bloomberg. "Without doubt, it's better grooming."

Mosquitos wouldn't be so bad if they sucked body fat instead of blood.

You can be the cleanest person in the world and still get body or head lice.

Reminds me of the refrain from a song by The Who called "Boris the Spider" :
"Creepy Crawly
Creepy Crawly
Crrepy Creepy Crawly Crawly...."
