Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it only the really expensive food that was bad? So it was primarily a rich person thing as far as food went?

It's like a lot of time periods that people romanticise. Kinda enjoy my basic standard of living and not dying from a curable disease thanks. Even if you look dapper in the outfit

Cholera, Typhoid, Scarlet fever, and Smallpox were some of the illnesses they had due to poor hygiene.

I imagine it was a bit of a tradeoff for things being relatively simple back then. The fits absolutely go hard and have traits in modern day clothing but that hygiene problem was probably exceptionally rough by todays standard but normal per the time period
