Asians have less than anyone does, with 1 percent. Of the estimated 30.6 million people worldwide living with this horrible, life-threatening disease in 1997, about 68 percent were living in sub-Saharan Africa. 22 percent of all cases were in Southern and Eastern Asia and the Pacific, 4 percent in Latin America, 5 Percent in North America and the Caribbean, and 2 percent in Europe and Central Asia. In 1994 and 1995 AIDS was the leading cause of death among Americans ages 25-44 years old. It was also the leading cause of death for men in the same age group and the third leading cause of death in women 25-44.
In 2010 , 256,000 deaths were resulted because of prostate cancer. Rates of the cancer vary across the world. It is least common in East and South asia, and most common in North america, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Among asian men prostate cancer is least common, and most common in black men, with figures of white men in between. The annual incidence rate of prostate cancer among the time of 1988 to 1992, chinese men in the U.S. is 15 times higher than the rate/number is in china.
"They discovered that among healthy adult males who were not being treated for infertility, the average sperm count had declined by about 40 percent, from 120 million sperm cells per milliliter of semen to about 70 million" (Big Drop 36). In 1979, a professor at Florida State University, upon analyzing student semen samples discovered surprisingly low sperm counts and alarmingly high levels of toxic chemicals (including DDT and PLB's). "He suggested that environmental pollution might be causing the sperm decline" (Big Drop 36). The results of his findings triggered studies all over the world, showing counts in the range from 55 to 75 million and others showing numbers well above 100 million. Men exposed to high levels of toxic chemicals on the job were found to have semen containing pollutants.
Similarly, a rubella epidemic broke out in 1964 and 1965 and “infected 12½ Americans, killed 2,000 babies, and caused 11,000 miscarriages.” Only nine cases were reported to the CDC in 2012, long after a vaccine was finally made to combat the virus. This disproves Dr. Tenpenny’s claims. Had vaccines not been administered upon discovery and approval, death rates and the number of cases would not have changed at all. As proven, statistics plummeted drastically after vaccines for the respective viruses were available and
Review of Literature Many studies performed worldwide suggest a relationship between lack of circumcision and urinary tract infection (UTI). In 1982, Ginsberg and McCracken described a case series of infants five days to eight months of age hospitalized with UTI. (Thompson, 1990) Of the total infant population hospitalized with UTI, sixty-two were males and only three were circumcised. (Thompson, 1990) Based on this information, the researchers speculated that, "the uncircumcised male has an increased susceptibili... ... middle of paper ... ...a cultural and religious ritual and has been maintained over the decades despite the risks associated with this nonessential, surgical procedure. The current literature does not reveal a need for circumcision in the neonate.
Chlamydia trachomatis, the sexually transmitted form, is often called a “silent” disease resulting from the overwhelming number of cases with no symptoms (Centers for disease control). With no signs or symptoms present, people often go years untested and untreated. When Chlamydia is left untreated it can lead to serious health problems such as infertility in men and women (Centers for disease control). The incubation period for Chlamydia varies from source to source, however it seems to range a course from 1 week up to 6 weeks. Chlamydia is highly asymptomatic with approximately 50 percent of men and 75 percent of women showing no signs (Moore).
There are millions of diagnosed cases worldwide, but there is no cure(Drotman 163). There are about a million people in the United States who are currently infected with HIV(HIV/AIDS 1). It infects the population heavily in some areas of the country and very lightly in other areas. No race, sex, social class, or age is immune(AIDS Understanding 10). AIDS has killed more americans than the Vietnam War, which killed 58,000(AIDS Understanding 10).AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
When asking why, one could look to SPARC an online resource for men which reports 50% of all mothers admitted to seeing no benefits being provided by fathers; and 40% of all mothers admitted to interfering with the father’s visits as punishment. Taken together, these statistics portray a picture of men as providers, and incapable of being nurturing parents (SPARC). According to Cohn, Alvin W. based on census reports, infant fatalities decreased, general living conditions for juveniles had seen a substantial increase, and single father homes also increased between 1991 and 2001. These particular increases portray that fathers, in contrast to popular belief, are capable of providing nurturing stable homes for their children, possibly even more so then mothers. However, today, based on the WSCCR (Washingt... ... middle of paper ... ...gov/wsccr/docs/ResidentialTimeSummaryReport2010.pdf” Bleckblog, Anonymous, “Fathers rights endangered in Washington State“, Sun, 05/31/2009 - 22:20 “http://bleckblog.org/comp/node/3400” Alan Booth, Mindy E.

Because of neuroplasticity physical training works to cure some of the paralysis left by the virus and allows us to walk again after the legs or another appendage is deformed or damaged. Fifty-nine years after the vaccine was introduced to the world, the number of cases of outbreaks has dropped 99% and only three countries still remain in an epidemic state with the virus, Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In 1994, the WHO Region of the Americas was certified polio-free and in in 2013 only406 reported cases were existent in the world, compared to the 350 000+ cases in 1988. (Who, 2014). So it is clear that the vaccine is working, and a plan of action to completely eradicate polio from the world by 2018 or 2020.
It's misconceptions like these that fuel the normilization of circumcision. The United States of America is one of the very few countries that practices routine infant circumcision. In fact, 80% of the world's population does not circumcise males as a regular practice. Germany has gone as far making circumcision a crime, citing circumcision as a criminal assault in 2012. It was once common belief
