True. That is why, when circumcision is being discussed, that it
is important to look at least this source of data: the medical
literature published in reputable medical jouranals. If you do
so, you will find some controversy going on, but you will also
find that the most rigorously conducted scientific studies can
offer no valid reason for routine neonatal circumcision.
