Apparently it's a parent's responsibility to circumcise their children so that old crones don't feel bad about their age.
Is Baby Penis Skin the New Botox?
Unless you have young sons, you might not be aware that circumcision is on a downward trend, and that the anti-circumcision lobby is gaining ground. Not your problem? Well, it turns out that this issue is suddenly of relevance to everyone: Foreskins are the latest tool in the fight against aging, and we're going to need a constant fresh supply!
Developed by a biomedical company, "Vavelta" is a clear liquid, made from millions of microscopic new skin cells cultured from babies' foreskins, which is then injected into the skin to treat wrinkles, sun damage, and scars.
The clinical trials, which took place in London using "material" from a US hospital, have just been completed and reportedly show the technique to be "astonishingly effective." So there's a minor "ick" factor. But what's that compared to injecting your face with deadly poison or cow skin, or indeed to (gulp) actually aging?

yes....a "minor" ick factor....?
sick - esp the part "we need a fresh supply" ... wow, pretty unashamed propaganda, mm? Almost vampire-like in nature...
seemed odd also that this article should come out of the UK, I thought. [by leah HARDy]...

Don't knock the UK. This trial used US foreskins but we have places like the UK Circumcision Centre working flat out to supply our local trade in foreskins.

"Anti-circumcision lobby"? What are we, big oil?!?
How about "human rights campaigns".

great point --
btw, I wasnt necessarily knocking the UK earlier, but, simply noticing, as I had thought many uncircumcised men live there. They had stopped for the most part getting "cut" in the 1930s or 40s, was it, at least thats the impression I was coming from.

I was only joking about 'knocking the UK'. I know in the US you have a very sad day on 4 July as you never again were governed well, so you have to commiserate with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events just to try to cheer yourselves up!:p
Maybe the white ladies in the UK want white US foreskin cells injected, as many removed in the UK have too much melanin and they would not want their faces being darkened.:eek:
I believe the UK National Health Service stopped paying for circumcisions in 1950 but I was born after that date and was circumcised in hospital. Maybe I just had a dinosaur doctor.:mad:
I believe apart from the religious traditions of Jews and Moslems infant circumcision is uncommon in the UK. Younger servicemen where I work seem to be generally uncut, except for the US ones. It was never mentioned to my wife when our boys were born and our eldest is in his 20s. However, doctors seem to rush to it now as the answer at the slightest excuse, so the old ideas are still there. I believe my cousin had it as an older boy, but the family would never talk about it. I do not know the reason.:confused:

Watch out baby boys! Keep the circumcisions going. Ignore the pain and damage done.
The mothers and babies are screened before the foreskins, which would otherwise be discarded, are used. Once in Britain, they are divided into pieces less than a centimetre square.
We want to make a good, healthy harvest of live, human tissue and not want to infect these vain women. Centimetre squares? How many from one tiny baby penis?
These are derived from baby foreskins donated by mothers at a hospital in the U.S. after routine circumcision. A vial of Vavelta costs £750, and to treat two cheeks for acne scarring would need two.
Oh, so money is not a motive then...
There is no need for recovery time.
But there is for the baby boy - it may take longer than a lifetime.
I've had a fantastic result on a raised, red, painful caesarean scar.
Yes and look at the raw bloody mess you left of the baby boy's penis.
But because scarring causes psychological damage, when the treatment works, we are talking about a life-changing effect.
Yes, life-changing for the boy, too
Transient redness and itching are the only reported side effects.
But nothing compared to the mutilated bloody penis the boy now has.
Is Vavelta safe? It seems so...circumcision complications include death. Other complications last the boys whole life.
That is really worthwhile then, a small price to pay for vanity and big profits.
