early puberty

  1. Hormone crisis leads to early puberty

    Girls are growing up faster than ever

    We're swimming in so much estrogen it's a wonder we're not drowning in it -- and if you think all those excess hormones are damaging us adults, wait 'til you see what it's doing to kids.

    Especially little girls.

    Little girls are hitting puberty earlier than ever, according to the latest research --with overweight and obese girls now developing breasts at 8 years old.

    Yes, 8 years old.

    That's second and third grade in most places!

    This is more than just the inconvenience of having to take a young child shopping for a bra. Early puberty is a serious developmental issue that can lead to behavior problems in the short run and cancer over the long haul.

    Everyone's looking for the reason for this surge in early puberty and today, I'll give you two: Estrogen... and more estrogen.

    The first estrogen comes from obesity, as fat causes the body to produce more female hormones.

    The second comes from outside -- all the estrogens around us, in estrogen-like chemicals such as BPA and plant estrogens such as soy.

    Next thing you know, your chubby little girl is a fat woman -- and she's still in elementary school. And while the new study focused on girls, this estrogen crisis extends to boys as well.

    They're also getting female hormones from obesity and the environment -- and that's why we're seeing so many pudgy and effeminate little girly-men running around these days (and most of them need bras of their own).

    Consider this a wakeup call.

    First, help keep the kids and grandkids in your life trim. It's not hard; kids are calorie-burning machines -- just keep them away from junk and fast food, and make sure they're outside playing and not parked in front of the boob tube.

    And second, limit exposure to all those other estrogens. Start by eliminating soy and all packaged goods from their diet.

    I had the full story on chemical estrogens in the October 2012 issue of the Douglass Report. If you're a subscriber, use the password in this month's issue to read it online.

  2. Boys are going through puberty earlier

    Hormones force kids to grow up fast

    Boys are going through puberty up to two years earlier, with their voices starting to crack at the age of 9 in some cases, according to new numbers in the journal Pediatrics.

    That's only third or fourth grade, for crying out loud.

    But on the other hand, maybe they're just keeping up with their classmates -- because girls are also going through puberty earlier than ever.

    For the girls, puberty kicks in so much earlier these days because they're exposed to estrogen at every turn -- the hormone is in meat, milk, soy, packaged foods, canned drinks, toys, shower curtains, scented candles, and more.

    There's even estrogen in the water!

    Boys are getting estrogen from all those same sources, of course. In theory, that should delay puberty for them -- so researchers are stumped.

    But I'm not.

    In lakes and rivers around the country, male frogs and fish are spontaneously turning into females -- and it's because of all the estrogen in the water.

    It's not happening in humans -- not literally, not yet -- but take a look around. Today's young “men” are weepy, wimpy girlie-men -- and most of them even have their own pair of manboobs.

    So, sure, they're going through early puberty... FEMALE puberty! In a generation or two, they may even start menstruating (assuming they haven't already).

    By the way, all that estrogen is obviously disastrous for kids. But it's not much better for older folks, and can increase the risk of everything from diabetes to cancer.

    Don't wait for the government to act. Protect yourself and your family by swapping hormone-laced processed foods for an all-natural diet of fresh organic meats and dairy, and filtering your own water with reverse osmosis.

    A class of chemicals used in perfumes and cosmetics can dramatically increase the risk of diabetes in women.
  4. Study finds alarming rise in early puberty

    What are little girls made of? Forget sugar and spice and anything nice -- because today's gals are packed with more hormones than a dairy farm.
  5. Early puberty, a growing concern

    Early puberty in girls is no longer a uniquely American problem. Now it seems that European girls are also physically maturing earlier than usual than ever before.
