Common Questions

Instead of calling it “circumcision”,  call is by another name (Gardasil)  and see what questions  a new medical proceedure must go thru to prove it’s value.

 Lets look at the common questions that surround a new medical proceedure/vaccine. We see those questions being brought up in  the discussions about Gardisil.  http://www.medhelp.org/health_videos/Dr-Nancy-Snyderman-Reports-on-Gardasil/show/2436

Is it safe ?

is it effective?

is there a gauranteed benefit for each person,  or do  only a small number benefit? (when only small numbers might “possibly” benefit, should routine treatment then be avoided?)

what are the common side effects , redness nausia , tenderness,  fainting  (14-15 thousand reported)

what are the worst effects?   Does the causality of death concern you ?   …(37-38 deaths - causality the common thread of these 37-38 deaths is the gardasil vaccine)

Are we going to find out a few years down the road that there are serious risks that are not taken into account. (this happened when HRT was routinely recommended for women)

The vast majority of diagnosis and deaths occur in developing nations  (living in a modern nation with modern healthcare system is a “vaccine” in itself, benefit without risk)

Is there a simpler and safer way/s to prevent the problem without risking damage and death . (Simple changes to  personal behavior is proven to have the most consistent benefits , another “vaccine” with only benefits and no risks.)

A critical question the wasn't asked ..  What effect does profit have on the groups that are poised to benefit , how does it shape their opinions?




Now ask  each of the same questions about circumcision ,  with it’s long history it is much easier to find the answers .

Rebuttal of routine circumcision.

I was reading about E. Schoen’s failed attempts to have Europe accept routine circumcision.
