Circumcision Ritual May Protect Men From AIDS

Male circumcision is likely to reduce the risk of contacting HIV from intercourse// with HIV infected women by about 70%. A recent study involved 3,000 HIV negative men in Africa between 18 and 24 years. Half were circumcised and other half were not circumcised. They were followed up for one year.

Researchers found that for every ten uncircumcised men who became infected with HIV, only an estimated three circumcised men contracted the virus. Further research in this area is warranted. It however makes one wonder if the religious ritual of circumcision after all does have some significance and if our forefathers new more than we think they knew!!

Bertran Auvert, the French researcher headed the trial and is expected to present the findings later this month at an International AIDS Society conference in Brazil.

This study also contradicts a previous study that linked circumcision with increased HIV infection.
