    Default Circumcision increases risk of ASD

    "Research published today by the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine suggests that circumcised boys are more likely than intact boys to develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD) before the age of 10...
    Painful experiences in neonates have been shown in animal and human studies to be associated with long-term alterations in pain perception, a characteristic often encountered among children with ASD."

    Sounds like complete bull**** to me.

    Circumcision is performed under a sacral nerve block (so infant will not feel a thing), and when this wears off, regular paracetamol and ibuprofen will keep bubs comfortable.

    Interesting, but most these days use anaesthetic so its no more painful than a needle (at least in the first few hours) and most would control pain with panadol/nurofen? Always good to read new studies, though I wouldn't call it conclusive, there are too many other factors that could influence results...

    I don't believe in routine circumcision but it is important to note that this study shows a correlation, not causation.

    The suggestion of early experiences of pain influencing psychological development is interesting though.

    Vaccinations hurt too. Haven't we just spent years proving that vaccinations do not cause autism?

    Absolutely...if one is hypothesising that repeated, ongoing pain in infants may induce neuroplasticity of pain pathways, etc...then this may have some merit in light of what we already know. But a simple circ...no, rubbish.

    (And I am not pro-RIC either).
