Trauma to Soft Tissue Theory

I am an anti corporal punishment activist (search "Swayseeker corporal punishment" on the internet.)

Calcium can be laid down from corporal punishment. Could this apply to circumcision where there is stress and anger from chafing at the circumcision injury? See below:

Recently I contacted The Anger and Stress Management Centre of South Africa and gave them this information:
Adelle Davis, in Lets Get Well, tells us this: "It is now generally accepted that severe crippling arthritis is a psychosomatic illness resulting largely from unconscious accumulated anger" (for example, the beaten pupil is not allowed to express his anger to the teacher beating him or her). Dr Hans Seyle found that emotional stress (corporal punishment is very stressful) and harm to soft tissues produced by hitting and so on can cause calcium to be laid down in the damaged soft tissues of the body of animals. Dr Seyle produced the counterparts of such human diseases as arthritis and hardening of the arteries in this manner. Diseases such as scleroderma myositis, dermomyositis and bursitis have in common calcification of soft tissues. The tissues may become calcified following such slight injuries as bumping into furniture, pressure of brassiers and so on. It seems to me that many could be suffering permanent damage due to excess calcium having been deposited because of corporal punishment and this permanent damage could be causing anger.

The Anger and Stress Management Centre of South Africa agrees with me that stress can cause many diseases.

In my view the combination of stress and hitting is particularly bad.

Calcification at the circumcision site?

A reply Eddie got in regards to soft tissue trauma:

Mr. Miller,

I must admit that I am certainly not an expert on Corporal punishment and its effects in regards to trauma in the subcutaneous tissues. However, in researching the issue of soft tissue calcification, there would certainly seem to be many correlations to the results of corporal punishment and the results of trauma from injury to the tissues. It is well known that calcifications can develop in the muscle tissues from bleeds induced by trauma such as sports and injury. The healing process can result in calcifications in the muscle and soft tissues resulting in decreased strength and pain. It would seem reasonable to me that an injury induced by trauma from a blow delivered for corporal punishment purposes could also result in calcification to the tissues damaged. There are no studies that I was able to find that specifically targeted the injuries that result from corporal punishment.
