Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, asserts that after weighing both sides of the issue, circumcision should not be banned.

NEW YORK, NY – November 8, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, social media medicine expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website sharing recently released medical findings showing lowered risk for some diseases, as a result of infant circumcision. The article, titled “To Circumcise or Not to Circumcise… That Is the Question” says that risk for HIV contraction lowers by an astonishing 60% for men who have been circumcised.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Male circumcision has been a longstanding controversy in America today. It’s a medical practice that revolves around religious practice, personal preference, familial beliefs and even cultural rites of passage. However, as with any surgery, there are reasonable risks involved with make circumcision that should be considered seriously. With so many deep rooted reasons for choosing to agree or disagree with male circumcision, it’s no surprise that the controversy is heated.”

“Interestingly, the arguments that support circumcision became even stronger, just days after California government ruled in its favor, when a medical journal released a study showing that circumcised men are less likely to contract some sexually transmitted diseases than uncircumcised men. The risk for contracting HIV is lowered by 60%, while the risk of contracting herpes is lowered 30% and HPV by 35%. Other benefits include lowered risk of urinary tract infections,” reports Dr. Anderson.
