so i was reading through the pros & cons of circumcising boys on a bunch of sites & i kept reading that cutting tends to lower the risks of illness weather its from infection from poor hygiene or from stds, but did they take into consideration that most of those world wide who are cut are done for religious reasons, and those same religions also teach abstinence & that adultery(sex out of marriage) is a sin.
also when it comes to those who are not cut & the very small percentage of them who developed UTIs as babies, what is the correlation between infections & exclusive nursing on demand. since breast feeding leads to better a immune system.
does anyone know where i can find info on circumcision with these factors factored into the equation?
Well I know my husband isn't cut and he wishes he was. As for the religious factor it is against several religions to have sex before marriage, but most still do. Also, usually the infections associated with be circed or not aren't going to be affected by a breastfed immune system. The stats are based solely on who is cut and who isn't, who has had how many of these infections and who hasn't and then the findings are tallied into a statistic.
