  • 2016-04-01 AAP Journal Pediatrics - Circumcision Debate: Beyond Benefits and Risks (AAP admits 2012 flawed)

    http://pediatrics.aappublications.or...peds.2016-0594

    From the article:
    = = = = = =
    "Circumcision is basically and usually a religious or cultural preference on the part of the parents, not a medical decision.

    "Parents and medical advisers use medical evidence selectively to bolster their prior ideological positions on circumcision.

    "We did not recommend circumcision.

    "Circumcision is not necessary for optimum health.

    "Underlying aim of 2012 circumcision policy was to counter proposals to prohibit non-therapeutic circumcision of minors.

    “Given the role of the phallus in our culture”, it is legitimate to consider non-medical factors in the circumcision decision.

    "Not all penises have to look the same.

    "The risk/benefit equation we devised (“benefits outweigh risks”) is applicable and relevant only to those who have non-medical (cultural, religious, social) reasons for circumcision."
    = = = = =
    Still no mention of the PROPER way of evaluating an intervention: RISKS and HARMS versus BENEFITS.

    They won't admit it bluntly since circumcision puts millions of blood stained dollars to the pockets of so called "docs" and hospitals. This very sad stuff...........very sad.....
