Well boys, it’s official. If you’re circumcised you cut the chance of catching HIV in half. Circumcising works so well that researchers stopped clinical trials in Kenya and Uganda to announce the results. There’s a couple of reasons why they think it works.

1. Because the cells on the inside of the foreskin are particularly susceptible to HIV infection and they’re cut off when a man is circumcised.
2. HIV also may survive better in a warm, wet environment like that found beneath a foreskin.

How ’bout that. Of course using condoms is still the best way to prevent the spread of HIV.
