Ravich, Abraham  
Preventing V. D. and Cancer by Circumcision
 Picture
Publisher: Philosophical Library, 1973 New York.
ISBN: 0802221106 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "The Prophet Moses, 3600 years ago, re-instituted circumcision, first introduced by Abraham several centuries earlier, to stem the alarming V.D. rate among his followers. Over 19 centuries ago, St. Paul, flaunting rules for circumcision set by Jesus' Disciples and Apostles, discarded this hygienic rite for Christians. Not since Moses' time had an opportunity presented itself such as the author's to study the true value of circumcision. Dr. Ravich was the originator in 1941 of the concept that cancer of the prostate, cervix and other sex organs was a venereal disease caused by the transmission through sexual intercourse of a smegma virus from under the foreskin. It was this discovery and verification by virologists that has led to the search for and finding of viruses in other cancers of the human body. Dr. Ravich has been known internationally in urological circles for many years through his development of cystoscopes and other urological instruments marketed all over the world under his name, as well as some important original contributions in his field, such as the so-called 'Ravich Theory' for renovascular hypertension." 211 pages.
