Teens: Before Their Time

Teens: Before Their Time -- "With budding breasts and pubic hair, U.S. girls are developing earlier than ever. What's causing it? And what are the psychological effects?"

I'm sure there's something in the environment causing this. Maybe its the unnatural foods we eat (all the meat is pumped with hormones and other chemicals, just for starters), or in the air or water.

As a father of a young daughter, I find this very interesting. I hope this turns out to be as simple as starting puberty early, instead of signs of something actually very bad in the future.
