Thomas E. Wiswell, M.D., was a doctor at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.[1] He practices as neonatologist (Pediatrician who cares for and treats newborns in particular) among others in Honolulu, HI,[2] and Orlando, Fl,[3] USA. Wiswell is a common Jewish surname (Why is this important?).

Starting in 1983, he began to produce a series of egregiously flawed studies that falsely claimed circumcision reduced the incidence of urinary tract infections.[4][5][6][7][8] All have long since been thoroughly discredited.[9][10] Wiswell associates with the Gilgal Society,[11] a circumfetish group.[12][13]

Wiswell has allied himself with Brian Morris and other circumcision advocates since 2009. He co-authors articles with Brian Morris and others.[14]


Easy Money
I have some good friends who are obstetricians outside the military, and they look at a foreskin and almost see a $125 price tag on it. Each one is that much money. Heck, if you do 10 a week, that's over $1,000 a week, and they don't take that much time.
