Study - circumcision reduces HIV

Researchers said circumcision can dramatically reduce the chances that men will be infected with the HIV virus during sexual intercourse. A study conducted in a South African township by South African and French researchers finds that circumcision reduced the risk of transmission by 70 percent in men, a far more successful rate than observers had been expecting. Some experts are calling the development "a major breakthrough." Others want to see more data on the experiment.
