"...Models the impact of different interventions, circumcision doesn't measure up. Researchers are *surprised* are you?..."

Not really, I never expected anything different, but we tend to often be so blind to the obvious that we need a lot of subtitles until we finally get it...

Not in the slightest. The foreskin is an enduring, natural and vital part of the male genitals. It has existed for thousands of years, through countless outbreaks of disease and pestilence.


Enough said.

I'm surprised that they found this and actually made it public.

"If circumcision provided a prophylaxis, their numbers should be around 15% that of whites or less since they have a higher circumcision rate and no more that 20% or 25%."


A prophylaxis is a defence, not a cure. So perhaps we should look for other reasons; sexual activity maybe?
