Removal of foreskin: Performed on all jewish babies on 8th day of life, on all devout muslims before adulthood & majority of caucasian americans. It prevents smega collection under a foreskin, reduces risk of utis in 1st 6-months of life & risk of cancer in men with poor penile hygeine or inability to retract foreskin & significantly reduces risk of HIV in africa & possibly elsewhere..
