Van, as many now know, motivated one of the greatest biology researchers and teachers the world has ever known, the beloved Harvard biologist George Wald, to examine circumcision in the light of his vast knowledge of almost everything. Professor Wald did so, and wrote about it in 1975. We just got it published in the 10th International Symposium proceedings, some 35 years late. What a committed Jewish male, who is also a great teacher, philosopher, and humanitarian, not to mention Nobel Prize winner, thinks about the act of removing the foreskin should be of interest to everyone who has the least interest in this procedure, whether for or against it. Read it with care, and tell others about it. It is all right to copy it for your personal use.
