There’s an entire generation of girls who are sexually maturing as early as 8 years old. Why is this happening?
Obesity, toxins and stress are to blame. The number of obese kids has tripled over the last 30 years. An overweight girl’s body signals that she can support a pregnancy and hormones clear the way for babies.
Toxins that mimic estrogen spark breast development even before menstruation starts and triggers overall sexual maturity.
Stress activates hormone responses to danger which tells the body to hurry up and reproduce because you might not get the chance.
Kids who have poor relationships with their parents and girls who grow up without fathers start puberty early putting them at risk for parenthood and a loss of opportunity.
Watch for signs of puberty in your kids and help them learn to cope.
