What hidden patterns tell us about the spread of diseases | Margaret Cullather | TEDxVCU
More than 90,000 people each year will die from a hospital acquired infection. That's more than people who die from firearms, car accidents, or homicide combined. But patterns in communities can help us prevent this. Margaret (Maggie) is recently graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a double major in Microbiology and Science, Technology, and Society with a minor in Community Health Psychology. She recently presented research in several research symposiums local to the Albany area and additionally has been published in the Journal for Asthma Educators on her research regarding the impact of playing a musical instrument on asthma health outcomes. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

NYC, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene- Center for Health Equity
The Center for Health Equity invests in key neighborhoods—or the places in our city that have been deprived of sufficient resources and attention, and which bear the highest burden of disease. These areas include North and Central Brooklyn, the South Bronx, and East and Central Harlem. In order to “right” this injustice, the Center for Health Equity has district public health offices (DPHOs) in each of these neighborhoods. Having the DPHOs located in the neighborhood offers the ability to establish and engage community partners. By engaging partners, collective impact in our health equity work is possible. Featuring out reach programes like “Shop Health”, a department initiative that aims to change the retail environment to introduce healthier options in local bodegas. And The Brownsville Bike Lanes, 28 miles of bike lanes introduced around the city, to allow residents to ride bikes and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Who gets asthma?
Asthma affects people of all races. Minority populations are more affected by the disease both in terms of incidence and severity. The reasons for this are not well understood, but it is believed that this is due in part to genetics as well as poor living conditions and minorities' lack of access to healthcare. --- Asthma Answers at a Click was developed to supplement and reinforce the asthma education provided by your physician, not as a replacement for medical care and advice. As a Web-based product, Asthma Answers at a Click gives you an opportunity to access a wealth of asthma information regarding symptoms, management techniques, medications and triggers in the privacy of your own home, at your leisure, 24/7.

Asthma Interventions: Research Into Practice on Asthma Disparities Part 2 of 4
A3 - Asthma Interventions: Research Into Practice Part 2 of 4 Gregory Diette, M.D., MHS, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Associate Professor & Director of Clinical Kate Scott, MPH, RN, BSN, Baltimore City Department of Health, Asthma Program Director, Reducing Asthma Disparities (RAD) Initiative Research, Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Recorded at the "Clearing the Air" conference addressing asthma disparities in Maryland on June 28th, 2011. Held at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum, MD. For more materials visit; http://www.aafa-md.org/ http://www.aafa-md.org/asthma_summit.htm http://www.aafa-md.org/thumbdrive.htm Gregory Diette, M.D., MHS, - African-American children have disproportionately high rates of asthma, as well as excessive morbidity and mortality compared to other races. Race-based disparities in asthma health are not new, but the gap between whites and blacks has widened inexplicably over the past 30 years. Many factors coalesce unfavorably in this highly a￿ected group, including high exposure to certain ambient pollutants, certain indoor allergens and pollutants, and the e￿ects of poverty. Another factor that distinguishes the inner- city African-American child is a diet of poor quality that may increase susceptibility to airborne pollutants and allergens. The "Mediterranean-type" diet has been shown to protect against asthmatic response and is low in pro-in￿ammatory foods. Rich in anti-oxidants and Vitamin D, the diet is comprised of whole fruits, legumes, vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, and low-fat meats, versus so-called junk food and sugar-containing beverages. In the U.S., over only the past 30+ years (the same time period in which race-based heath disparities have widened in asthma as well as in diabetes, heart disease and obesity), the national diet has diverged signi￿cantly from this healthy diet pattern. These unfavorable patterns are especially notable in low-income African-Americans (see background). We will discuss the evidence behind these statements and the Johns Hopkins ASTHMA-DIET program which is studying how airway in￿ammation and oxidative stress are modi￿ed by diet and how with these ￿ndings may be translated into practical dietary strategies to improve pediatric asthma health. Kate Scott, MPH, RN, BSN - will present ￿ndings from a home visiting program, targeted to inner-city families with asthmatic children (ages 4 to 18), that strives to reduce home based asthma triggers, improve asthma management, and establish community-based support networks for families within a "healthy home" framework. Preliminary results suggest that the Reduce Asthma Disparities (RAD) approach is resulting in reduced presence of pests and reduced evidence of environmental tobacco smoke. Learn about the e￿cacy of a comprehensive holistic housing approach that includes integrative pest management (IPM) and smoking cessation to reduce allergens and establish an asthma friendly home environment. Gregory B. Diette, M.D., MHS is Associate Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and Environmental Health Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University. He is a pulmonologist with a practice devoted to the care of patients with obstructive lung diseases, including asthma and COPD. He has an extensive portfolio of patient-based research in asthma and COPD, supported by the NIH and other sponsors. Dr. Diette's current research focuses on identifying environmental causes of obstructive lung diseases, the role of diet in development of asthma, as well as understanding and reducing disparities in health of racial and ethnic minorities. Dr. Diette received his undergraduate degree in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the Doctor of Medicine degree from Temple University and a Master's degree in Epidemiology from the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Kate Scott, MPH, RN, BSN is the Asthma Program Director, Reducing Asthma Disparities (RAD) Initiative, for the Baltimore City Health Department. There, she directs clinical asthma programs including the CDC-funded translational research grant for asthma home visiting services for children. She represents the Health Department on the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) Maryland Asthma Coalition Executive Committee and the Greater Baltimore Asthma Alliance. She received her RN and MPH from Johns Hopkins.

National Center for Environmental Health & the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, CDC
The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the places we live and work -- the environment around us can keep us healthy -- or it can make us sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) are dedicated to a single mission: keeping Americans safe from threats that begin with the very things that we need most in order to live: air, water, food, and our homes. CDC's National Asthma Control Program has built a strong network of asthma prevention programs in metropolitan areas and school districts across the nation. Through science, service and leadership, they are keeping American children safe from harmful exposures and diseases related to their environment. When communities across the nation are concerned about chemical exposure, ATSDR works directly with them to understand whether health effects exist and to prevent exposure. When contaminated well water was discovered in the town of Pavillion, WY, ATSDR analyzed data and found important information to share community members to allow them to protect their health. www.cdc.gov/nceh www.atsdr.cdc.gov

Community Garden Targets Environmental Health Problems
A community garden near Fairmount Boulevard and University Avenue is growing medicinal plants that can relieve the symptoms of asthma, which they say is a community health epidemic in City Heights because of poor housing stock. The volunteer-run Remedy Community Medicine Garden has a small, but dedicated, crew of caretakers, including Rich Macgurn. He's an accredited acupuncturist and herbalist. "A major problem we have here in City Heights is really poor housing conditions," Macgurn said. "You have really bad, old apartments, landlords who are just not fixing up apartments, old carpets, mold, cockroaches, rats. Those are all major irritants, triggers for asthma." The garden contains various herbs that can be steeped in tea to open the bronchioles, said Valerie Camacho, a volunteer at the garden. They can also help treat other common ailments such as diabetes. A recent study found that the asthma rate for City Heights adults is much lower than the the rate for adults countywide. It also reported that obesity rates have dropped for children in the area. But more City Heights residents reported just fair or poor overall health than county residents, and an alarmingly high number of children in the neighborhood are without health insurance. The remedy garden could help bring needed relief. By Brian Myers, Media Arts Center San Diego Editor Megan Burks Read more at Speak City Heights http://www.speakcityheights.org/ Transcript: Rich Macgurn, Volunteer, Remedy Community Medicine Garden: This is purple aster, we use the roots, the roots are these crazy looking reddish things. They're used for coughing and wheezing, so that's commonly added to an asthma formula. If you look at asthma rates in this country, its primarily urban areas in poor communities of color. I know specifically for City Heights asthma is an epidemic amongst young people, like it is in most urban areas. A major problem we have here in City Heights is really poor housing conditions. You have tons of really bad, old apartments, you have landlords who are just not fixing up apartments, you have old, old carpets, mold, cockroaches, rats. Those are all major irritants, triggers for asthma. Valerie Camacho, Volunteer, Remedy Community Medicine Garden: We started with a focus on health problems that have environmental roots that are super common in City Heights. So we started off looking at asthma, diabetes, and conditions that are caused by long term stress and tension. There tends to be a lot of, "Take these pills, change your lifestyle." No real guidance. The pills have a lot of side effects and often are not very effective at managing the conditions. There's no differentiation between what people are experiencing, it kind of becomes, "You have diabetes, deal with it." Rich Macgurn: And plus it's a major class issue, because if you look at what's cheapest, crappy food, unhealthy food is the cheapest. You are able to buy more calories for your dollar if you're buying nutrient poor, but high calorie food. There's a real blurry line between food and medicine, because food is medicine. And if you look at lots of these plants here, there is no clear distinction between herb and food. And diet is something that is so crucial to all these problems we were talking about. Valerie Camacho: Herbalism was one of those ways in for me to figure out how to relate to my body with all the complicated problems I was experiencing. Rich Macgurn: When we're talking about any health problems, we can't just talk about herbs, we can't just talk about food, we have to talk about every aspect of a person's health, and that includes, emotional, physical, spiritual. Valerie Camacho: We work with other groups in the community to talk about means of self care, means of reducing your need for medicine, of understanding what's happening in your body. So that way, you're not quite as powerless in the dynamics of the Western medical system. Rich Macgurn: It's really important when you're talking about a problem like asthma, not to just treat an individual and say, "Ok, how are we going to deal with your asthma," look at nutrition, look at herbs and stuff, but we have a major epidemic here. So, what are we going to do as a community to resolve this problem, because it's not an individual problem, it's a community problem.

They'll Do ANYTHING To Keep This Hidden! The Biggest Operation EVER REVEALED!
You Have To See This! In just two evenings alone, The Sydney Morning Herald reported that 8,500 people in Melbourne, Australia attended Victorian hospitals as of November 22-23, 2016 due to "thunderstorm asthma." According to the Melbourne department of health, stormy weather conditions caused pollen to explode in the air, triggering breathing problems for many people across the state, including those without a history of asthma or other lung conditions. Commonly known as "thunderstorm asthma," this "rare phenomenon" occurs after a severe thunderstorm — said to be based on "environmental conditions." However, what's even more disturbing is how these diseases are covertly spreading, with little-to-no mainstream media attention whatsoever. Just today, on Wednesday, November 30th, 2016, the BBC reported the first "sexually-transmitted" Zika virus in the U.K. And it doesn't stop there. While Obama has just recently signed an Executive Order advancing the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) — there is an Agenda behind all of this indeed. Here's what the U.N., WHO, CDC, your military, and your government AREN'T telling you: In as early as 1954, these Alphabet Soups have been carrying out covert operations with bugs and mosquitoes for international warfare — a term commonly known as "entomological warfare." These 4 Major Operations have all involved the use, dispersal, and conduction of disease-carrying fleas, mosquitoes, and other killer bugs in secretive locations. 1. Operation Big Buzz: A field test conducted in Georgia, 1955 — in which the U.S. military dispersed over 300,000 yellow-fever-carrying mosquitoes to (a) demonstrate the feasibility of mass-producing, storing, loading into munitions, and disseminating mosquitoes from aircraft, and (b) to determine if the mosquitoes would survive the airdrop and take blood meals from humans. 2. Operation Big Itch: An entomological warfare field test conducted at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, 1954 — to see how long fleas could respond to attack, once unloaded. 3. Operation Drop Kick: Conducted in 1956; an operation carried out in 1958 — in which well over 600,000 mosquitoes were released in Avon Park, Florida. 4. Operation May Day: Conducted in 1956; field test in which mosquitoes were released in an urban area (Savannah, Georgia) — tested for effects and dispersal rates. With all of these covert operations, what are they REALLY testing for?!?! THE TRUTH REVEALED!!! SEE THE WARNING SIGNS AHEAD OF TIME!!!!

HUD's Smoke Free Public Housing Rule
In late 2016, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that public housing developments in the U.S. would be required to provide a smoke-free environment for their residents. The effective date for their final rule was February 3, 2017 and it required thousands of Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) to implement smoke-free policies by July 31, 2018. According to the final rule’s summary, posted in the Federal Register, each Public Housing Agency must implement a “smoke-free” policy banning the use of prohibited tobacco products in all public housing living units, indoor common areas in public housing and in PHA administrative office buildings. The smoke-free policy must also extend to all outdoor areas up to 25 feet from the public housing and administrative office buildings. This rule improves indoor air quality in the housing; benefits the health of public housing residents, visitors, and PHA staff; reduces the risk of catastrophic fires; and lowers overall maintenance costs. Regarding the need for this smoke-free rule, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had stated the following: In buildings that have multiple housing units, secondhand smoke can move from unit to unit through hallways, stairwells, heating and air conditioning systems, and other ways. More than one in three nonsmokers who live in rental housing are exposed to secondhand smoke. And many who live in public housing are especially vulnerable to the effects of secondhand smoke, including children, the elderly and people with disabilities. Minimizing exposure to secondhand smoke is important as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified it as a Class A known carcinogen back in 1992. In 2006, the U.S. Surgeon General concluded that there is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. According to the CDC, nationwide, secondhand smoke exposure contributes to approximately 41,000 deaths among nonsmoking adults and 400 deaths in infants each year. Secondhand smoke causes stroke, lung cancer and coronary heart disease in adults. Children who are exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, acute respiratory infections, middle ear disease, more severe asthma, respiratory symptoms and slowed lung growth. The CDC also reports that HUD's smoke-free policy will save public housing agencies $153 million every year in repairs and preventable fires, including $94 million in secondhand smoke-related health care, $43 million in renovation of smoking-permitted units and $16 million in smoking-related fire losses. These are just a few things to know about HUD’s smoke-free public housing final rule.

Halving Global Cardiovascular Disease Mortality
Cardiovascular disease (CVD), which includes heart attack, stroke and heart failure, is the leading cause of death in the world today, with an estimated 17.5 million deaths per year. On September 15, 2016, we hosted the Halving Global Cardiovascular Disease Mortality Rates symposium. The symposium highlighted the growing global burden of CVD and the powerful evidence generated from population-level surveys and studies in China, Cuba, India, Mexico, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. The sessions explored tobacco use, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, main risk factors that have a direct impact on CVD morbidity and mortality. Sir Richard Peto, Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at the University of Oxford, provided the keynote address on primary and secondary prevention. The CDC Foundation presented its Hero Award to Sir Richard in recognition of his efforts to save countless lives worldwide by uncovering the root causes of CVD and cancer and bringing data to bear on public policies.

Drywall VNR
Since the early spring, the federal government has dedicated significant resources to helping families affected by the drywall issue in their homes. The government has been and continues to be committed to providing answers and solutions to these homeowners. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and numerous state departments of health have been working together to investigate and analyze how Chinese made drywall entered into the country, where it was used, what is in it, and what impact it may have on human health and corrosion of electrical and fire safety components. This is a complicated problem, and we have several studies and other activities underway to help bring the best possible science to bear. The first sets of data released today start to explain differences between Chinese and non-Chinese drywall, but more remains to be learned. We are sharing what we know at this point and are outlining the next steps as we continue to work to answer homeowners questions about what is causing the effects reported and observed.

6133 Final Project - EXTREME HEAT PODCAST
YOUR LIFE AND YOUR WORLD! We’re talking sunny days, heat waves, and everything in between. Here are the key points: UNUSUAL FEBRUARY WEATHER (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/programs/metromorning/february-2017-warmest-on-record-1.4004298) (http://www.wzzm13.com/weather/fickle-february-weather/416251791) (http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2017/03/08/us-winter-warmth/98898274/) THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average temperature on Earth increased 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit in the last century and over the next one hundred years data projects another increase between 0.5 to 8.6 degrees Fahrenheit (The scientific evidence is clear: the Earth is warming. ) Greenhouse Gas Effect (bubble it creates around the Earth) EXTREME HEAT CDC defines extreme heat as “summertime temperatures that are substantially hotter and/or more humid than average for that location at that time of year.” CDC notes that the number of extreme heat events had tripled in 2011 and 2012 when compared with the average The earth does not bounce back as quickly as humans do - subsequent environmental impacts of these events (drought, water scarcity, crop damage, etc) are getting worse and worse Extreme heat related events induce a myriad of health problems and cause more deaths than any other weather-related hazard—more than hurricanes, tornadoes, or flooding Extreme heat can result in death from heat stroke and heat exhaustion, plus death from other chronic illnesses as exacerbated by the heat. Asthma, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and other chronic illnesses have been associated with and are exacerbated by extreme heat. If temperatures are expected to increase, you have to adapt/be proactive SOCIAL FACTORS MICRO (Individual) Vulnerability - children and adults age 65 + Current population trends indicate that the number Americans 65 years and older will grow as will the number of people living in urban areas. Not only do these factors indicate vulnerability, they also serve as indicators of response and recovery capabilities. Vulnerable populations who experience disasters are less likely to respond appropriately to the risk at hand. Moreover, residents of urban cities experience an even greater risk due to the urban heat island effect. MESO (Community) Outdoor laborers Those that suffer from poverty are also more exposed to the extreme heat due to their working conditions. Crop workers, typically of Mexican, Central and South American descent, are 20 times more likely to suffer heat-related death. Without the ability to adequately protect themselves from the devastating heat or to take days off, this population is greatly affected by extreme heat events and often suffers first. Impoverished communities/heat islands This population is greatly affected because they are less likely to access services that will prevent extreme heat illness or be able to access working air conditioning. In many cases, even if a family has working air conditioning, the high cost of running it may prevent its use. RECOMMENDATIONS The EPA encourages the following steps: forecasting and monitoring, education and awareness, comprehensive heat planning, timely response, and infrastructure improvements. In this moment, we’re going to focus on the micro, or what can you do on the individual level to protect yourself primarily, as well as your family, and community. Be aware of the forecast so that you can plan for extreme heat! Plant a tree to help shade your house and lower temperatures in your home Contact your local representative, city commissioner/mayor, etc to see if air conditioning subsidies exist or if they have a comprehensive plan to respond to extreme heat (do they have a cooling center established? Do they have the infrastructure to be able to handle power failures? Are there backup generators? etc) Have a plan for accessing air conditioning in the event of extreme heat As extreme heat events are increasingly likely to occur, especially within urban environments, it’s absolutely critical that we find practical and tangible solutions and prepare before it’s too late.

COPD, Now a disease of the Non Smokers too
A Disease affecting 30 millions lives, and many more cases undetected COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease has become the 5th deadliest disease across the globe. COPD is always known to be asmokers disease, non smoking COPD has now become one of the major issue in developing countries. A major reason of disability, COPD is the second leading cause of death in Indians above 50 years of age. While cigarette smoking-COPD strong correlation is an established fact, recent studies have shown that there are numerous other risk factors that trigger the disease in non-smokers. almost half the population worldwide are exposed to smoke from biomass fuel, used for cooking and heating purposes. Hence, exposure to bio mass is the leading cause of COPD in the rural areas bringing the mortality rates higher of COPD. It is reported, at least one fourth of patients suffering with COPD have never smoked. A Burden of Obstructive Lung Disease (BOLD) study also reports of high prevalence of COPD in non smokers. According to Dr.PK Thomas, Chest Physician, Apollo &Fortis Malar Hospital,“Lower living standards in a country like India has claimed many life due to COPD. It is mostly deadly because we cannot identify the disease and treat it at the right time. Especially when the patient is non smoking the diagnosis takes longer.” Apart from Bio mass fuels, the current condition of air pollution has also made COPD a major concern in the urban areas. I terms of air pollution, 10 of the most 20 polluted cities in world are from India.In a Survey by Central Pollution Control Board, Lung function reduced in 40.3% individuals in Delhi, as compared with 20.1% in control group. Dr.PK Thomas, said, “ The quality of air that we breathe today is toxic. With the presence of these nano particles in the air, the functionality of our lung is hampered the most. With these living condition in the urban region, respiratory ailments are of major concern. In urban India, 32% households still use biomass stoves, 22% use firewood, 8% use kerosene, and Rest use cleaner fuels like liquid petroleum gas or natural gas.About 50% of deaths from COPD in developing countries are attributable to biomass smoke, of which about 75% are of women. Biomass fuels like wood, animal dung cakes, crop residue, pose as great a risk as active smoking. Reportedly, an almost three-fold increase in the prevalence of COPD among women has been noticed. This, experts point out is on account of the fact that women and young girls, especially in rural areas, spend a greater time in the kitchen. More than 80 per cent homes in China, India, and sub-Saharan Africa use biomass fuel for cooking because of it easy availability. Biomass fuels produce very high levels of indoor air pollution. Most often than not, the kitchens in rural areas lack basic facilities and are poorly ventilated, exposing the homemaker to extremely high levels of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter. COPD is also a major occupational hazard. A National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted a survey and found that industries and occupations at increased risk of COPD ranged from transportation-related occupations; machine operators; construction trades freight, stock, and material handlers; records processing and distribution clerks; sales and waitresses. The fraction of COPD attributable to work was estimated as 19.2 per cent overall and 31.1 per cent among never smokers. Another factor adding to the COPD burden is cholinesterase-inhibiting agricultural pesticides. Prolonged exposure to agricultural pesticides (organophosphates and carbamates), which are frequently used in India, has contributed to respiratory problems, decreased lung function and COPD. Data suggests that the incidence of COPD in farmers (non-smokers, pesticide users) was 18.1per cent.6In terms of occupational exposure, brick workers have significantly lower lung function as compared with controls. A popular product that finds its way in our homes, especially in summers is the ubiquitous mosquito coil. It may shock us to learn that the mosquito coil emits as much smoke (PM2.5) as those from 100 cigarettes and as much formaldehyde as those from 50 cigarettes! We may not be regular smokers but unwittingly we are inviting trouble by using products that compromise our health. An analysis of more than 300 patients with respiratory ailments, from rural areas in India, revealed that more than 75 per cent of asthma patients who had not received proper treatment for their condition and were on oral bronchodilator drugs alone for a long period had developed symptoms like those of COPD. The research concluded that poor treatment of chronic and severe asthma across the world, especially in developing countries, might largely contribute to the burden of COPD.

Child Circumcision: An Elephant in the Hospital
mirrored from here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ceht-3xu84I Visit Ryan's site here: http://www.notjustskin.org This video is also available here: http://vimeo.com/26130057 What is infant circumcision? Why is the practice common in U.S. hospitals and not in other countries? What does it remove and how does that affect the child? Does scientific data suggest that circumcision has benefits? What are the potential complications? How does it affect sexuality? Is it a medical procedure or a social surgery? If it's unnecessary surgery, what about contemporary bioethics principles? Through both a review of scientific literature and a discussion of the human cost of the procedure, this presentation explores these questions from the perspectives of the child, the adult survivor, the parent, and the practitioner. Ryan McAllister, PhD, is a parent, a biophysicist, an Assistant Professor of Physics and Oncology at Georgetown University, and also a volunteer who supports parents and families. Over the last 10 years he has been studying the medicalization of childbirth in U.S. hospitals. The slides, supplementary material, references and a copy of the video can be downloaded here: http://physics.georgetown.edu/~rmca/Elephant_in_the_Hospital/ NOTE: This presentation includes some graphic slides necessary to present the procedure and anatomy being discussed. Today, most Americans think of circumcision as natural procedure for male babies. Neonatal circumcision is the most common operation carried out in the U.S. today. Nationally, rates are as high as 60%, down from a peak of 75% in the 1970s. But when compared to the rest of the English speaking world, America is unique. Great Britain, Canada and Australia have current rates of male circumcision at about 15%, whereas New Zealand is lower than 5%. In the US, the rate differs by regionally, with high rates of circumcision in the white South, but low circumcision rates among babies of Hispanic origin. Most of the rest of the Western world has retained the abhorrence of male circumcision that has existed in Europe since the time of the ancient Greeks (and as noted in the last post, some in 18th century England feared Jewish emancipation meant universal circumcision!). What happened in the US that made the procedure so popular? There are a number of reasons that brough circumcision to prominence in America in the early 20th century. 1. Stop Masturbation! Advocates were aided by the puritanical moral sentiment of the day, as circumcision was promoted as a way to discourage masturbation. (Modern surveys have actually shown the opposite to be true.) 2. Circumcision as a cure for maladies. In 1870, Dr. Lewis Sayre of New York (and vice president of the newly-formed American Medical Association), examined a boy who was unable to straighten his legs and whose condition had so far defied regular treatment. Upon noting that the boys genitals were inflamed, Sayre hypothesized that chronic irritation of the boys foreskin had paralyzed his knees via reflex neurosis. Sayre circumcised the boy, and within a few weeks he recovered from his paralysis. After additional positive results, Sayre began to promote circumcision as an orthopedic remedy, and his prominence within the medical profession and the newly formed AMA allowed him to reach a wide audience. Over the next decades, the list of ailments reputed to be treatable through circumcision grew to include hernia, bladder infections, kidney stones, insomnia, rheumatism, epilepsy, asthma, erectile dysfunction, syphilis, insanity, and a handful of other syndromes. 3. Hospitals. Compounded by cause no. 1, as hospitals proliferated in urban areas, more children were under the care of physicians in hospitals rather than with midwives in the home. Some historians have even theorized that circumcision became a class marker of those wealthy enough to afford a hospital birth. 4. Easier Surgical Procedures. The discovery in 1885 of hypodermic cocaine as a local anaesthetic made it easier for doctors without expertise in the use of chloroform to perform minor surgeries. Several mechanically-aided circumcision techniques, forerunners of modern clamp-based circumcision methods, were first published in the medical literature of the 1890s, allowing surgeons to perform circumcisions more safely and successfully. Circumcision was at a statistical height of about 75% of the country from 1950 to 1970. Today it is becoming less popular, partially because of high numbers of Hispanic immigrants, and growing opposition in the more progressive northeast and west (it remains overwhelmingly common in the South). Today, the major medical societies in the USA do not recommend routine non-therapeutic infant circumcision. This has long also been the case in the rest of the English speaking world, which has never seen circumcision rates as high as the United States.
