Off with their heads! "Men have a 60 per cent lower risk of acquiring HIV if they are circumcised"

Health studies show that circumcision has significant health benefits for males.

But some people are still angry about it for reasons that aren't entirely clear.

There have been male circumcision-related problems and even deaths in South Africa, but those are caused by their being performed on teenage youths rather than infants and the procedure there is frequently performed by people without medical training.

The lesson being, if you're going to get it done, get it done early and by someone who knows what they're doing.
