Canadian study concludes circumcision doesn’t reduce HIV risk

A new study that involved a massive 569,950 males over a 15 year period has shown no protective effect from circumcision against HIV.

The authors concluded, “We found that circumcision was not independently associated with the risk of acquiring HIV among males from Ontario, Canada. Our results are consistent with clinical guidelines that emphasize safe-sex practices and counselling over circumcision as an intervention to reduce the risk of HIV.”

This is yet more evidence that HIV doesn’t care that you’re circumcised, and claiming that it does is yet more misinformation in a misinformation age.
