Posted on 12/08/2012 11:49:28 AM PST by Olog-hai
Infections of the kidney, bladder and urethra happen in uncircumcised baby boys at ten times the rate of circumcised boys, and over a lifetime, uncircumcised men are four times more likely to experience one, according to a new analysis of past research.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are most common in boys first year of life, and circumcision was already known to make a difference in their risk, but how much and whether that carried through to adulthood was unclear, Australian researchers say.
They found that circumcision provides considerable protection and over the lifespan makes about a three- to four-fold difference by our prediction, which is quite striking in public health terms, lead study author Brian Morris, professor of molecular medical science at the Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney, told Reuters Health.

TMI, no its factual info coming from a former Army MSC officer.
I was that old too.
It was so traumatic I couldn't walk for a year.
Why did they accidentally cut the head off then sewed it back? :-)
“It is not for no reason that circumcision reversal procedures are advertised with increasing frequency these days.”
Hacking off functional parts of the penis does not make one civilised - all Muzzie males undergo the penis mutilation process, for instance.
Circumcision is only questionably justifiable for the uncivilised who cannot follow or be instilled in them a simple hygiene regimen of washing ther privates every once in a while. A man has higher chances of developing breast cancer than penile cancer, just to put things in perspective.
The Founding Fathers were all uncut and their generation was almost wholly uncut. Circumcision became popular in America after advocacy by that Kellogg nut, and as a preventative for syphilis - one more disease for the non-monogamous, adulterous, fornicating barbarians.
Rabbi Tuckman: I am Rabbi Tuckman, purveyor of sacramental wine and moyel extraordinaire.
Merry Men: ‘ello Rabbi!
Rabbi Tuckman: Hello boys!
Robin Hood: A moyel... I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of that profession.
Rabbi Tuckman: A moyel is a very important guy. He makes circumcisions.
Scarlet: What, pray tell, sir, is a circumcision?
Rabbi Tuckman: It’s the latest craze. The ladies love it!
Little John: I’ll take one!
Ahchoo: Hey, put me down for two!
Robin Hood: I’m game. How’s it done?
Rabbi Tuckman: It’s a snap.
[demonstrates with a carrot and a miniature guillotine]
Rabbi Tuckman: I take my machine here, I take your little thing, I put it through this hole, and then...
[releases the blade, cutting the end off the carrot]
Rabbi Tuckman: I nip the tip! Whose first?
Merry Men: [groan]
Little John: I changed me mind!
Ahchoo: I forgot, I already got one.
Blinkin: [puts his hand in the air] Question...
[Ahchoo pulls his arm down silencing him]
Rabbi Tuckman: I gotta start working with a younger crowd.

The government has no right to try and enforce circumcision because of perceived health risks, and this is what will eventually happen if the health-Nazis continue to get their way. This MIGHT cause you to become ill, so we will prevent it by force.
In terms of parents circumcising, I recognize there is a constitutional issue, in that you don’t have consent from the child before you carry out circumcision, and tradition or not, it is amputating part of the body that cannot be recovered easily (although this is changing). It’s hard to decide who has constitutional protection in this issue. Is it the parent? Or the child?
Definitely a topic that is going to come to the surface in the coming years. Interesting to debate.
The lefty government enforce circumcision? I would think the other way around, given their views on Israel and Jews in general.
So since you’re against it for any medical reason (however minuscule) do you believe that it should be banned even though it’s engrained in several large religions?
Anytime I see someone speak so voraciously against circumcision it always seems to me that they’re disguising their dislike of religion with ulterior arguments.
That’s the attitude! (And true.) ;-)
Nope. Muslims also practice it, and you know how we cannot dare to infringe upon Muslim rights. That would be a travesty.
Find faults in my argument. No sale with me on barbaric cultural practices, genital mutilation being the foremost example of its kind, both male and female. Imagine how these were performed just 120 years ago, when modern surgical practices were all but unknown - cutting with dirty knives, and sucking the blood by the mohel with his mouth - disgusting / abnormal rot!
Nature designed the penis with a protective, highly-innervated sheath for a purpose. Deal with it. It is unfair for a human being to have his sexual organs mutilated and diminished in qualitative function for a god, without his free will consent. There might even be some connection between sexually unsatisfied males (due to diminished pleasure from the amputation of the sensitive foreskin) and tendency to be polygamous / fornicative - quantity over quality, and all that.
Bet you can’t wait to stoke those ovens.
Means to an end. If the lefties here follow the European script, they will ban it for Muslims too.
Have a wonderful day!
The arrogance of humans who believe they have a better design than the one by the Creator.
