This on the heals of a report in the November issue of Pediatrics, the results of a 25-year study show that circumcised males are less susceptible to STDs.
Circumcision used to be the norm in American hospitals, but has been on the decline for at least 20 years as its medical benefit has been questioned and ties to cultural traditions (Jewish, Muslim) have loosened. These new studies certainly shift the ball back into the "pro-" court.
How about you? Did you have your baby boy circumcised? Why or why not?
