HIV

Postby fireblaze » Thu Dec 14, 2006 10:33 am

hi guys its been a long time. i just returned from africa.

a bbc report says

There are several reasons why circumcision may protect against HIV infection.

Specific cells in the foreskin may be potential targets for HIV infection and also the skin under the foreskin becomes less sensitive and is less likely to bleed reducing risk of infection following circumcision.

When Aids first began to emerge in Africa, researchers noted that men who were circumcised seemed to be less at risk of infection but it was unclear whether this was due to differences in sexual behaviour.


what do you guys think?

Yap, it's right sachin@biog :D
HIV is a little tricky virus and can't be stopped by just circumcision.
