Things you didn’t really want to know

According to this article a baby foreskin is a pretty valuable item

“There is the resale value,” says Tinari. He is referring to the fact that human foreskins are a highly valuable tissue that can be grown in a lab to the size of a football field.

The foreskin has more blood cells and nerve endings than almost any other skin on the body. Most baby foreskins are used in insulin production, breathable bandages, and in the cosmetics industry. People like Tinari wonder why the sale of all other human tissue is considered illegal, or is highly regulated, yet doctors are allowed to remove healthy tissue without the patient’s consent and against all medical recommendations, then sell it for profit in a for-profit industry.

    This is really messed up. Money makes even the good things in this world seem like heaps of ashes.
