To test it, we explored the relationships between SIDS and  male neonatal circumcision (MNC) and prematurity, using latitudinal data from 15 countries and over 40 US states during the years 1999-2016. We used linear regression analyses and likelihood ratio tests to calculate the association between SIDS and the stressors. SIDS prevalence was significantly and positively correlated with MNC and prematurity rates. MNC explained 14.2% of the variability of SIDS's male bias in the US

Adversarial childhood events are associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS): an ecological study

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the most common cause of postneonatal infant death. The allostatic load hypothesis posits that SIDS is the result of perinatal cumulative painful, stressful, or traumatic exposures that tax neonatal regulatory systems. To test it, we explored the relationships between SIDS and two common stressors, male neonatal circumcision (MNC) and prematurity, using latitudinal data from 15 countries and over 40 US states during the years 1999-2016. We used linear…

Circumcision and MTHFR: When a little snip is a genetic nightmare

Everyone knows one of my favourite rabbit holes is the discussion of epigenetics, especially MTHFR. For those new to the topic, MTHFR is an abbreviation, not a cuss word, for a gene that handles an enzyme tasked with managing the methyl cycle in the body. The complexity of the body is such that a genetic mutation in this area will influence every part of the body, slowing down functions, impairing processes and encouraging deficiencies in vital areas. A person with MTHFR has trouble…

The Guggie Daily: Are Circumcised Men Stuck in a Cycle of Abuse?

Are Circumcised Men Stuck in a Cycle of Abuse?

Have you thought about routine circumcision in a broader context? By normalizing this abuse (circumcision) against baby boys, we have alienated an entire group of hurting people. What a hard time it must be, to not only be preparing for your child to enter the world, but also to suddenly be confronted with the knowledge that the people who were supposed to protect you, such as parents, doctors, religious authorities, instead held you down and hurt you. Victims of classic rape often start…

The Guggie Daily: Big Boys Don't Cry

Big Boys Don't Cry

I still remember the numb, buzzing sensation of shock as the words settled into my soul. I was sitting at the playground, watching my kids dart in and out of the slides and tunnels. I reached that point where I was vigilant, but on autopilot. My ears slowly tuned into the background noise and heard several ladies next to me at a picnic table discussing circumcision. I had tuned in just in time to hear one lady make a clear assessment of her son's genitals. "We made sure to schedule his…

We cut our son to make our lives easier.

Despite the constant discourse online about infant (male) circumcision, it seems the basics are still completely lost. Let's get clear here. Circumcision is the surgical REMOVAL of an ORGAN without a medical emergency present and without consent from the person. It seems this can’t be said enough. What is with people trying to say it’s just a snip? What part of tying a baby down to a circumstraint board and cutting off an organ is just a snip? It’s just a tiny piece of a baby’s body. Ok…

The Guggie Daily: I said no

I said no

Shared anonymously by an American Dad: This came to me one night at work. I typed it into my phone as fast as I could. It's not really a direct opinion of a grown man, but a guess at how he felt as a baby when it was happening. I said no. They strapped me down. I couldn't move my arms or legs, they were held tight. I said no with every ounce of strength I had, every fiber of my being. My chest and belly heaved to get away. The muscles in my arms and legs strained. I felt my foreskin get…
