Circumcision Offers Men, Not Women, Some Protection Against AIDS

Researchers recently had to scrap a trial they hoped would confirm that circumcision protects men and women alike from AIDS. They found that while it does help protect uninfected men from contracting the disease, it doesn’t reduce transmission between HIV-infected males and their female partners. But the researchers say that removing the foreskin cells of a penis, which are easily infected by the virus, protects men so well that women may benefit in the long run because it will prevent the virus from spreading.
