Friday Not-My-Pet Blogging Mark IV

OK, there's not actually any pets involved in this story at all.

Circumcision prevents urinary tract infection

It's a misleading headline, though.
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The results of a new report confirm that circumcision reduces the risk of urinary tract infection -- but the authors estimate that more than 100 boys need to be circumcised to prevent one infection.
Look, can't people just let it go that it's a matter of religion or aesthetics and it doesn't *have* to have a medical benefit? Just as long as it doesn't do medical harm, I'm fine with it.

Of course, I don't have a personal stake in it. That's probably why.
