I'm back

...and scrambling to get caught up. So no Monday Miscellanea this week. However, there is this to chew on:
New Study Estimates Neonatal Circumcision Death Rate Higher Than Suffocation and Auto Accidents

Interesting, no? For more info on circumcision and a good resource for research realities vs cultural misconceptions and medical dogma, check out Intact America.

More later, y'all. Happy Wednesday!

    That's really scary. What's the justification for not informing parents of the risk? God!

    My sister is a doula, and you just would not believe the number of new parents who are very well-informed and cautious about unnecessary medical procedures but refuse to even question the circumcision thing. It makes no sense at all.

    Wow, that study is sobering.
