During the industrial revolution many people were working in factories and one major problem during that time was sanitation. Too many people were getting sick because the work places were not taken care of (cleaned). In 1852 over 10,000 people died from getting sick in the factories. Also many men, women, and children did not take baths for months because there was no point because they were gonna get dirty anyways. So most of that not washing also lead to sickness and sometimes death.
