Is Child Circumcision Obsolete or the Cutting Edge of American Ingenuity?
We examine here some of the reasons why 100 years ago the American medical establishment began to surgically alter the genitals of children. American medical professionals are increasingly reluctant to perform elective child circumcisions, as are their colleagues in all other Western countries.

Intersex
Is the new baby a boy, or a girl? One out of every two thousand births presents parents with a sudden gender dilemma. A tradition of secrecy means most parents are totally unprepared.

Children and Cars
America's most pressing child health issue.

Myopia: Room Light In Early Childhood and Nearsightedness
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia found that children who slept with either a room light or night light on until age two were more likely to later develop myopia (nearsightedness).
