Female Puberty Stages - The Untimely Instigations

Submitted by on November 11, 2010 – 4:02 amNo Comment



According to the latest studies, the age at which female puberty stages commence is seen to reduce. Ancient times witnessed the beginning of female puberty stages at the age of 16, which gradually reduced to 13 and now it is seen to be as low as 8 years of age. Doctors (Pediatricians and Gynecologists) and researchers claim that the chemicals used in daily house hold and cosmetic products are responsible for this. They consist of elements which mimic estrogen in the body. Also obesity is one factor greatly contributing towards this hazard the young girls are facing.

Obesity, which is highly common in young people today, esp. in girls, is the major reason for the early puberty in females. Obesity increases body mass which contributes towards rise in the estrogen hormone levels in the body. This hormone is the female reproductive hormone which is responsible for female puberty by development of breasts and commencement of menstruation. Breast maturity is the main and noticeable sign of the instigation of female puberty stages. Another reason found to be accused as a of the early female puberty is the use of chemical Bisphenol- A (BPA) chemical in the preparation of plastic for water and milk bottles, which are often used by children of ages below 10. This chemical is and endocrine disrupting one and causes the mockery of estrogen in the body leading to the early puberty in young girls.

In a realistic study conducted in regions of San Francisco bay, New York’s East Harlem and greater Cincinnati, about 1,250 girls of ages 6-9 were considered and their breast sizes were measured. The girls were 30% of each whites, blacks and Hispanics, with 10% of Asians. Measurement results showed that 10% of whites, 23% of blacks and 15% of Hispanic girls had developed breasts at the age of only 7. As the ages increased, the percentages and the sizes also elevated.

An early encounter of female puberty stages is not only awkward but also a hazard to health. It exposes the concerned females to breast cancer risks - due to overexposure to estrogen, youth abuse and violence, depression, pregnancy problems and so many other traumatic issues. This is really an issue of concern for every child and their parents, across the globe. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration have already raised flags for concern over this topic, and it has almost been a year. But hardly any improvements are visible and experienced. We all must give a thought, before using anything for our bodies, that what kind of stuff it could be and what consequences can it bring if we expose our being towards it. The kids need to get matured before even time. This mystery of untimely physical growth now needs some early mental maturation too.
