    Lightbulb Your thoughts on maybe the routine circumcision should be encouraged and mandatory.

    New studies suggest a lower prostate cancer percentage in men who are circumcised before their first sexual encounter.

    Lower prostate cancer combined with a reduced incidence of HPV being transmitted and other health benefits, could this be an indication that as a society we might need to call for circumcision as a surgical vaccine, perhaps not RIC straight after birth but perhaps sometime months later.

    Your thoughts please, on whether circumcision should be encouraged and mandatory and maybe your experiences.

    No I don't believe it should be mandatory. The study does not conclusively prove causality, merely an association (according to some expert).

    There are many other ways to lower your risk of prostate cancer that have overall health benefits, I think we should be pushing for these lifestyle changes instead.

    Pfft I don't have boys and the thought of 'pushing' these stupid pharmacutical money making schemes makes me cringe...

    Mandatory??? No way! And I am not anti-circ but that would be hideous for those who didn't want it!

    I do not believe in taking choices away from people.

    This is surely a joke thread right. Bodily autonomy blah blah. Come on Circangel, you've hung around bubhub long enough to know that no one would support mandatory circ. Ridiculous.
