Circumcision 

Graphs and statistics showing that intact males are not as rare as you believe:
http://www.cirp.org/library/statistics/USA/

In this clinical trial, 11 boys were circumcised with anesthetic and 13 boys were circumcised without an anesthetic. When adrenal cortisol levels (stress hormones) were compared, the anesthetic did not reduce the levels. Circumcision hurts, and it STILL hurts even with anesthetic: (The Guggie Daily)

    I just wanted to let you know that quite a few people have made their way to my blog from your link here on circumcision. So thank you for posting it, not for my sake, but for the sake of parents looking for more information and the baby boys who want to be kept whole.

  2. Ladawn Shiplett says:

    Products that are labeled zero calories are not that promising. It’s true. There are no calories in them but to make them taste as good as they are, substitutes are added. Artificial sweeteners that come with side effects are included in the ingredients. They have to be, to redeem the flavor. Otherwise, the products will end up too awful to be a delight.You’d think you’re in the right track with artificial sweeteners. With no calories, you can say goodbye to some extra pounds in your system. You feel as if you’re doing alright. Well, you’re not. Truth be told, if you intend on losing weight through these empty calories, you are kidding yourself. Not only do they not have any dieting advantage, they, also, puncture your body with other effects.’
