Today’s show featured Beldon Johnson, co-founder of The Primal Center in 1979 and author of new novel, “Fathers and Teachers”. He is a primal therapist and has worked with 100’s of adults to heal their early birth and circumcision traumas.
We talked about these links:
SO WHERE DOES TNS RECOVERY GET THEIR STUFF? You could ask one of their vendors….so I did. I don’t know why I’m actually putting effort into a Hump Jones article, either, but here’s the fruits of my labor:
Indeed it is made from proteins and other ingredients that have been found in foreskins, but we don’t think they actually get live foreskins and use them. We believe they reformulated it in a lab (like cloning).
Here is a link to a lot of information on TNS Recovery Complex, as we sell it right here on the site and the whole Skin Medica line. We offer samples of other skinmedica products with a purchase.
A U.S. Food and Drug (FDA) Committee recommended FDA approval of Dermagraft, artificial skin made from circumcised baby foreskins to treat diabetic foot ulcers, on condition that manufacturer Advanced Tissue Sciences, Inc., do a post-marketing study. NOCIRC’s attorney was given just five minutes to speak to the Committee in defense of the babies whose foreskins are cut off and marketed without their consent.
A commenter on the blog:
I have an uncle who received a foreskin treatment for his . I believe it worked for him. I understand the absurdity of foreskins getting recycled into high-dollar . But somehow this all doesn’t really bother me that much. Maybe it’s because I’m a woman. I can’t imagine the foreskin harvesting industry to be that lucrative, but maybe I’m wrong. It seems to make sense to me, on a basic level, to reconstitute and re-use leftover . Of course this does open a Pandora’s box regarding the ethics of cloning.
I guess I need to understand: do circumcised men feel they were cheated or exploited in some way?
THATS THE TOPIC TODAY …. DO circumcised men feel they were cheated or exploited in some way? Are any of us impacted by the experience of our birth…. csection, pulling the baby out … or a gentle birth at home where only mother and father are touching the baby or at least there are no interventions.
Now, doctors who specialize in wound management are growing skin to help people like Tomas save their limbs and extremities. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies are extracting collagen — a protein that makes up 75 percent of skin — from donated skin and creating grafts, or patches, that can induce a patient’s own skin to grow. The donated skin can come from a variety of sources: anything from a pig’s pancreas to a newborn baby’s foreskin. “In some cases, we can get four football fields of skin out of one baby foreskin,” said Dr. James McGuire, head of wound management at the Foot and Ankle Institute at the School of Podiatric Medicine at Temple University, in Philadelphia. “If taken care of, skin can grow and grow.”

A culture system using human foreskin fibroblasts as feeder cells allows production of human embryonic stem cells
We used post-natal, commercially available human foreskin fibroblasts as feeder cells.
Did you receive compensation for your son’s or your own foreskin?? Did the baby boys give their consent? MILLIONS of dollars are being made on the foreskins of babies.
