First let us look into what is Circumcision. Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin of the head of the penis in male and the hood of the clitoris in female.

Why should one undergo circumcision? If you are male you and if you have not undergone circumcision you will see that the head of the penis is underdeveloped. That means that the development has taken place only till the level of muscular structure. In other words there is no skin on the muscle of the head of the penis.

Likewise if you are a female and if you are uncircumcised you can clearly see that the clitoris is underdeveloped. Again what that would mean is the development has taken place only till the muscle structure and there is no skin on the muscle of the clitoris.

What exactly does underdevelopment means can be comprehended by the fact that every uncircumcised male and every uncircumcised female has to bear a perpetual pain of having a part of the body without a skin. When one gets injured and the skin is scraped and when one touches the bare muscle in that place, the pain that is experienced is borne by the uncircumcised male and uncircumcised female day in and day out but since this pain is a perpetual pain the body gets used to it. Even if they ignore it the pain is still there. 

Further the foreskin of the penis and the hood of the clitioris acts as an anchor for the microbes of bacteria and fungus and the virions of viruses. Then rub them on the underdeveloped and unprotected surface of the head of the penis and the clitoris respectively to ensure that the microorganisms enter the body and infect it with various diseases.

As mentioned above, in circumcision, the foreskin of the head of the penis in male and the hood of the clitoris in female is removed which not only stops the process of infection from the various microorganisms but also allows the completion of the development of the head of the penis and the clitoris.

41) Urinary tract infection would be reviewed as non-risky factor

Less or no presence of microbes makes Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision more protective against Urinary tract infection.

Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision reaches out to those who have tight foreskin of the penis or hood of the clitoris. They have proven that it is difficult or impossible to retract - a condition called phimosis, inflammation of the foreskin or head of the penis in male and inflammation of the hood or the clitoris in female could be a result of this condition, and they will be likely to have a quick turnaround to normalcy by getting circumcised. 

44) Any chances of Penile or clitoral cancer would be wiped away.

Penile or clitoral cancer can be cause from many reasons, including continuous irritation on the delicate and underdeveloped glans and underdeveloped clitoris by the microbes due to their breeding habits or due to the confrontation of the microbes against the immune cells of the body. Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision provides protection by developing a layer of skin over the glans or developing a layer of skin over the clitoris preventing the entry of the into the body. At the same time the removal of the foreskin and hood respectively in male and female ensures that the of the microorganisms don't get accumulated in that area which help prevent cancer, plus it keeps the area free from the excreta of the microorganisms too, which may be considered another irritant that can cause cancer. 

45) Added advantage of preventing the skin of the glans and clitoris from being kept delicate and moist.

The presence of the foreskin in male and the hood in female providing cover to the glans and clitoris keeps them underdeveloped and unprotected - making it receptive or prone to injuries and the moistness promotes growth of microbes and helps entry of virions of viruses like HIV. On a factual basis, Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision not only removes the foreskin and the hood but helps the completion of the development of the glans and the clitoris respective by allowing the body to cover the entire muscular tissue with a skin, like all other parts of the body and this also keeps the area dry.

46) Prevents the transmission of microorganisms through the underdeveloped glans and underdeveloped clitoris in to the body

The underdeveloped glans and underdeveloped clitoris, allows the transmission of microorganisms into the person's blood stream beyond his / her control. In fact, one could only hope that these wounds get healed before any major infection becomes a possibility. After Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision the development of the glans of the penis and the clitoris is completed and they are covered with normal skin, like other parts of the body, preventing the transmission of microorganisms through it. 

47) Gathering and breeding of microbes

The space between the foreskin and the unprotected, underdeveloped glans in males and the space between the hood and the unprotected, underdeveloped clitoris in females, could become an effective source of infection, especially if they lead to the gathering and breeding of microbes in some way. Remember it is microbes, and virions of viruses like HIV, that cause diseases and alter body composition. Consider that Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision leads to the removal of foreskin and completions of development of the glans in males and removal of the hood and completion of the development of clitoris which leadds to the destruction of that breeding ground and keeps the persons safe from regular attacks of the microbes.

48) Prevents the storage of infectious fluid

The space between the underdeveloped glans and the foreskin in men and the hood and the underdeveloped clitoris in female become ideal place for  the infectious fluid containing microbes and virions of virus like HIV to accumulate during and after intimacy or other transmission process. Those who are loyal to the natural process of intimacy would really be concerned about giving more time to the microbes in the infectious fluid to attack the cells of the body, while Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision does well to destroy this storage space. 

49) Submit the weakest point in the body for elimination

Not a single part of the body is as underdeveloped as the glans in the male and the underdeveloped clitoris in female; through which the microbes can invade the body or attack the cells of the person's body. There is no skin on this area so there is no protection here for the cells of the body and it becomes a gateway for the microbes and virions of viruses like HIV, so undergo circumcision and allow the completion of development of the underdeveloped as the glans in the male and the underdeveloped clitoris in female.

50) Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision becomes an area fortifier.

The presence of the microbes increases the concentration of immune cells of the body on the underdeveloped glans and the underdeveloped clitoris. Without the protection of the skin  the immune cells become easy prey to microbes and virions of viruses like the HIV and allow them easy invasion into these cells. There is always complete details of the body. Trying to invade the human body these microbes get stonewalled by Male Circumcision or Female Circumcision that fortifies this area by allowing the completion of the development of the underdeveloped glans and the underdeveloped clitoris such that both these areas grow a skin over the bare muscle structure.
