That's actually an example that goes against your point.

Hand washing wasn't routinely done for most of human history. It was only with the discovery in the 19th century that germs caused diseases, and studies that showed you could combat the spread of those germs by washing your hands, that people began to wash their hands after going to the bathroom.
