Circumcision should be seen ‘in the same light as childhood vaccination’: study | CTV News.

The comments are the most interesting part of this article. I wish we could teach people why certain arguments have no force. The ‘I’m this way and I’m okay’ argument is the worse. Everyone should have some idea of how statistics work. Almost as bad is the ‘nature made me this way’ argument. Nature is capricious at the best of times. Appendicitis still kills about 35,000 people per year and wisdom teeth operations kill about 1 in every 700,000 people who have them even with modern surgery techniques.
