How to use "Squeamishly" in context?

Anyone who has ever been the victim or defendant of a really gross bodily function might say they're a bit of a squeamish person. But why is it that some things make us feel queasy, and others don't?

One science article says that the root cause of queasiness may have something to do with our natural fear of infection. In a nutshell, when we smell or see something revolting, our brain sends a signal to the body to clean up and proactively avoid anything that might lead to infection.
