That’s new: circumcision seems to protect against HIV

Hank Green tells us about experiments that were done in which circumcised people were shown as being protected by the fact that the foreskin was cut off. It seems that there are some weak cells in there that are prone to HIV infection. Removing those protects one against HIV more that you’d think.

In any case, circumcision should be an adult’s choice, not performed on kids.
