Adult circumcision could potentially halve risk of prostate cancer

Since 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended circumcision as a way to limit the spread of HIV.When performed on men over the age of 35, circumcision could reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer by nearly half, according to a Canadian study published in the British Journal of Urology International. The study's authors emphasize that the effect was particularly significant among black men. In addition to having strong cultural and religious significance, circumcision has been shown to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections. Now proponents of circumcision have yet another argument in their favor.
