Observation of African tribes has for years suggested that circumcision plays a protective role against the contraction of the HIV virus. There was marked decrease in HIV incidence among African tribes that practice circumcision compared to those that don’t. A recently published study finally confirmed that indeed circumcised Men are less likely to contract HIV than uncircumcised men. The explanation is that the foreskin (which is present in uncircumcised men) contains cell receptors to which the HIV virus hooks and uses as main vehicle for infection.
