Uncircumcised versus Circumcised Baby Care(ie still has foreskin or lacking foreskin)

Pediatrician answers: How do I clean my baby’s genitalia? Should I retract it myself? We Americans have been indoctrinated with the belief that whole babies require inordinate amounts of cleaning. Is this really true? How to properly care for your uncut baby(It’s easy!): Protecting your Uncut Son from Medical Personnel: Reversing the epidemic of forcible retractions: FAQs About Foreskin Care: How do I care for my young son’s intact penis? The intact penis needs no special care. The foreskin should never be retracted by force. During the first few years of a male’s life, the inside fold of his foreskin is attached to his glans, very much the way the eyelids of a newborn kitten are sealed closed. The tissue that connects these two surfaces dissolves naturally over time – a process that should never be hurried. The foreskin can be retracted when its inside fold separates from the glans and its opening widens. This usually happens by age 18. Even if the glans and foreskin separate by themselves in infancy, the foreskin still may not be retractable then because the opening of a baby’s foreskin may be just large enough to allow for the passage of urine. The first person to retract a child’s foreskin should be the child himself. A very young boy usually pulls his foreskin outward. This is normal and natural and no cause for concern; he won’t hurt himself. Once a boy discovers that his

[11.13.2009] Just a few thoughts I had about the need to construct an environment of mental protection. Sorry about the whirley-cam, but i think you can still get the message out of it. This is mostly a call to action, because after having done this activity, I’ve become so much more aware of the mental controls that we walk into and out of, when interacting with public places – gyms, schools, driving – everywhere there is something trying to steal away your footing on reality by introducing some nonsense, obviously trying to sell you some immediate gratification, but also trying to make you more susceptible to being controlled. Thoughts, suggestions welcome. With Love

The best way to burn fat (ABC Health) Transcript: Exercise is important whether you need to lose weight or not. In fact, being fat but fit is considered healthier than being a skinny slob. Nonetheless plenty of us exercise with our waistlines in mind and we want to get bang for our buck. So what’s the best way to shed those kilos? Do we run, skip, cycle, walk or swim? Well, if you want a really efficient fat-burning program, rule number one is don’t waste too much time agonising over how to go about it. It’s true that running will see you burn roughly twice the kilojoules per hour as walking. But if you can only run for five minutes, whereas you could walk briskly for a full hour, then all other things being equal, your walking workout will see you shed more fat. Likewise, unless you really go hard, a 30 minute swim generally doesn’t pack as much punch as a brisk half-hour walk. But the upside of being held up by the water is that there’s less pressure on your ankles and knees. If that means you’ll work out more often, then swimming could well be the better way to go. So if you’re exercising for fat loss, the specific activity you choose is less important than whether you can sustain it. But what about the issue of intensity? One thing that generates confusion about this is a diagram you often see on equipment or on posters in gyms. It’s a graph that tells you what exercise ‘zone’ you’re in, based on your heart rate and your age. The so-called ‘fat burning zone’, is second from

Hula-Hooping Back As Exercise Fad

It might have ended up as just another passing fitness fad from the 1950s, but hula-hooping appears to have caught on and stuck. The initial appeal is that it’s fun, but the hula hoop’s lasting value is that it is good for you. Fitness experts say an hour of intense hooping can burn as many calories as an hour-long run on a treadmill. The activity has gained thousands of followers worldwide. Classes in the US are typically offered in gyms and private studios, although enthusiasts often meet in public parks and recreation centers. Paige Kollock reports from New York.
