You know you've been seen way too many cheesy, cliché movie trailers when you're reading an article about how circumcision prevents HIV prevention...when suddenly you can literally, physically hear that record-scraping sound in your head: You know, when the needle abruptly slides off the turntable after someone says something particularly zany?
Scientists say conclusive data shows there is no
question circumcision reduces men's chances of catching HIV by up to 60
per cent - a finding experts are hailing as a major breakthrough in the
fight against AIDS.
"This is an extraordinary development," said Dr. Kevin de Cock,
director of the World Health Organization's AIDS department.
"Circumcision is the most potent intervention in HIV prevention that
has been described.''
Damn it, I really need to lay off the Will Ferrell flicks.
