CANCERS RARE IN JEWS

CANCERS UNCOMMON IN JEWS

Penis (Squamous Cell Carinoma): Rarely occurs in Jews.  This is attributed to ritual circumcision. Published scientific research documents that cancer of the penis is rare in circumcised men.

CERVIX: Cancer of the cervix is less common in Jewish women compared to the general population. This is may be related to ritual circumcision of Jewish males. Published scientific research documents that cancer of the cervix is less common in the sexual partners of circumcised men.
