New African HIV Research claiming 76% reduction is flawed

New African research claiming circumcision reduces HIV infections by 76% actually compared young men who were interested  and participated in the circumcision HIV prevention program who were given health care, education and other resources vs older men who were not interested and didnt participate in the program and were not resourced by the programmers, and Researchers found a difference in infection rates? Is this surprising?  You are talking about 2 different types of men with different beliefs, values and behaviours.  One group that cares about HIV prevention and is prepared to receive help, have a healthy body part removed, and to change their behaviour to more safe sex, versus another group which cares less about HIV prevention, does not want to participate in a prevention program, and is most probably less prepared to change their behaviour.  Yet these researchers just focus on the variable of Circumcision.

HELLO which variables are causing the change!!!!!! This is typical procirc propaganda and   Disingenuous Science & Reporting!!  And as usual the media reports it as fact!!


  1. Doesn't surprise me. Pro-cutters were behind this study, so naturally they manipulated the results to favor their own conclusion!

  2. sweetheart, do you realize that this web address is not 'mind' but 'mond'? you have wonderful things to share and i don't know if you can change the address at blogspot, but you might be able to ADD a NEW blog with 'mindofown' name. they usually make it easy to download your content and then upload it to the new blog. you might want to keep the old one and just make a final entry that says, 'come to the new blog'. ????? 'mindofown' would make it far easier for us to find you.

    thanks for this article. tells it like it is.
