Trying to embed helpful information in a religion tends not to work out
well, especially when attempting to eventually get people to surpass those
instructions.  You might be able to get people to adopt soapy handwashing
as a form of ritual purity, but if you managed it, you'd have a hard time
getting them to accept actual hygienic standards instead of your ritual.
