Links that discredit the Circ prevents transmission BS:

Found this study from '07 that shows HIV is stopped by Langerin. It's possible that CIRCUMCISION MAKES IT EASIER TO ACQUIRE HIV by getting rid of Langerin. http://www.cirp.org/library/disease/H...

Just found this AWESOME article about how you can prove anything if you pick and choose your facts, and guide conclusions http://blogs.plos.org/obesitypanacea/...

check out this page: http://www.circumstitions.com/HIV.htm...

A breakdown of how BAD the studies really are: http://www.publichealthinafrica.org/i...

The details behind why some say circumcision prevents HIV. I mean, the WHY is anyone's guess... (justification of their own status, perhaps? Striving for research funds?) but there is a theory or two back there that they aren't even confident enough about to make as known as their results.

The U.S. has conducted an ongoing study on the impact of circumcision on std and hiv rates as it plays out in REAL LIFE and the result is that we have HIGHER rates than many places that do NOT circumcise.

Hmmmmmmm.........
