The rates of early puberty for girls have doubled in a little more than a decade, a new study of girls between 6 and 8 years old finds.
Some 10 percent of 7-year-old white girls were developing breasts compared to 5 percent more than 10 years ago, researchers found. For young black girls, early maturation was seen in 25 percent of 7-year-olds!
The results come from a study of more than 1,000 girls in three American cities. Researchers at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital who led the work say the rise in early puberty is linked to the rise in obesity in U.S. children, but they also say environment and genetics may be factors. The results were just published online by the journal Pediatrics.
Previous studies have shown a link between an earlier age for the start of menstruation and an increased risk of breast cancer. Researchers also noted that earlier maturation of girls is associated with lower self-esteem, and greater rates of depression, eating problems and suicide attempts.
 
 
 
Dr. Iverson's Comment
 
This is getting out of control. There has to be great changes in education if we want to see this number slow and reverse. One out of every four girls developing at age 7! There was a time when it was normal to not develop until age 14!
 
Not only is obesity to blame here but so are the chemicals in our foods. More than ever our children are exposed to XENO-ESTROGENS in their environment. These are chemicals that act in our body like estrogen because they look like estrogen but they are not naturally produced. They come from plastics our food is packaged in, household chemicals, makeup, petrochemicals, pesticides and herbicides….face it, we are swimming in them and they are all around us! As they build up in the body they can cause early puberty, infertility, changes in the sex organs in men and women including cysts, fibroids, and enlarged prostates.
 
Most of the food that is high in fat and fructose is junk food that is also high in these xeno-estrogens. A double whammy—the food is poor in nutrition AND high in hormone inducing chemicals. 
 
This is not only a local issue; it is a worldwide issue as pollution makes its way into our water and food supplies. Fertility is becoming a major issue worldwide and it should be enough for our country as leaders to change the chemicals that are in contact with our food.
 
Be well~
