In Bioengineering Class Today...

We learned about artificial skin grafts. They use a biodegradable scaffolding seeded with skin cells. Guess where the cells are from?

We don't need those anymore, check out the Nobel Prize from last year for creating pluripotent cells from adult cells. Search: "The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2012
Sir John B. Gurdon, Shinya Yamanaka".

"Yea theres actually a big circumcision lobby in Washington that acts on behalf of the foreskin mongers."

Awful,and reminds me that when we give blood at the friendly bloodbank,the recipients of the blood are forced to pay bigtime bucks for what I gave away.


This reminds me of organ harvesting.

If you have it on your drivers licence that you are a donor...and you show up at the ER unconcious....


ok, if they are selling the foreskin of infant boys then they need to stop charging for the service or let the guys who have it done get a kick back of some kind. Is there anything companies will not use to make money off of people?

What companies buy neonatal foreskins? Do hospitals/circumcisers have a profit motive? Is there an industry motive to continue newborn circumcision?
