Re: “Circumcision Decision

Jan. 6, 2011 -- Circumcising men can reduce cervical cancer risk in women, a new study shows.

The study involved more than 1,200 HIV-negative, heterosexual couples living in Uganda, where circumcision of male adults is increasingly encouraged as a means of slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Half the men received the surgical procedure at enrollment and the other half were scheduled for circumcision after their participation in the trial ended.

Two years later, the female partners of the men who remained uncircumcised were more likely than the partners of the circumcised men to be infected with human papilloma virus (HPV) types most often associated with cervical cancer.

In earlier trials, Johns Hopkins University researcher Aaron A.R. Tobian, MD, PhD, and colleagues showed that male circumcision reduces HIV infection, HPV in men, and genital herpes.

The new study appears online Friday in TheLancet.

“It is now clear that male circumcision can reduce HPV in females and possibly prevent cervical cancer in settings where HPV vaccines are not available,” Tobian tells WebMD.

Re: “Circumcision Decision

One aspect of the circumcision discussion missing from the article was the problem with cleanliness in the uncircumcised child. The buildup of smegma and the failure of the male to clean thoroughly can be a problem. Thank goodness the article didn't push for outlawing circumcision like what was proposed in San Francisco. Also not mentioned was the greater incidence of cervical cancer in uncircumcised male's mates.

Re: “Running on Empty

A full time nurse who cannot feed her children? Something seems fishy about that whole story. I would think some money management would be in order for people who don't know how to manage their money to get out of poverty. It is sad they don't teach money management in schools. Of course the credit card industry squashes that. They don't want people realizing the foibles of easy credit.

Re: “Mental Lockdown

Hearing about tragically lived lives can be heart rending. Thank goodness Ryan Allison did not get out of prison to hurt others, which he was prone to do. It is easy to sit back and point fingers at the system and complain they have not done the correct thing to help a mentally challenged person. Therapeutic drugs in my opinion are not the best answer for everyone but seem to help a lot of people. People who refuse to take the drugs usually "screw up" their lives. Is there an easy way to take care of the mentally challenged? No. Is there a correct way for all? No. It comes down to protecting society first and the individual second. I am glad I did not live next door to Ryan Allison. May he rest in peace.
