Issue Report: Infant male circumcision


Dr. Brian Morris, Professor of Molecular Medical Sciences. “Here are the Main Benefits of Circumcision”. Opposing Views – Means an over 10-fold decrease in risk of urinary tract infection (UTI). Whereas risk of UTI is only 1 in 500 for a circumcised boy; approx. 1 in 50 uncircumcised male infants will get a UTI. This very painful condition is particularly dangerous in infancy, and in 40% of cases can lead to kidney inflammation and disease. Sepsis and meningitis can also result. A lengthy stay in hospital is possible.
