I think it has to do with a huge number of factors, but mostly because of what we eat, and the unhealthy body that follows. There are a TON of things we deal with as a direct result of factory farming and processed foods. The food packaging, the hormones in meat and dairy, and the fact that nearly everything we eat is loaded with chemicals and high fructose corn syrup. Most people my age have no idea that you can create meals that don't come out of boxes. I had a friend the other day that was a little shocked that you could use flour and cocoa to make brownies. We need stronger enforcement regarding our food quality, ESPECIALLY in schools.

My now 12 year old daughter started her period at 9 years 9 months. That, I think, is from the super strong drugs she takes. She has severe autism and had been on risperidal for over 5 years by this time. Her next closest sib is a sister, 12 months, 4 days younger. At 11 years 7 months she just started to show breast development. I think poison in the environment are pushing puberty forward. But what can you do?
