Primary sex characteristics are those present at birth. Secondary sex characteristics are those that appear during puberty.
“Since 1850, the typical age of onset of menarche [periods] in young girls has dropped from 16 to about 12.5 years of age. Several guidelines now set the onset of secondary sexual changes in girls at age 8 (with menarche as early as age 10) and the onset of secondary sexual changes in boys at age 9 years. (From the site Healio).
HELLO! We’re talking breasts and balls here – at ages 8 and 9!?!
Let’s go back to the early1960s… a markedly less chemicalized time… And to the 1962 Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary which clearly defines what was Normal back then.
“PUBERTY: Period in life at which 1 of either sex becomes functionally capable of reproduction.
A period of rapid change in boys and girls. It occurs in temperate climates bet. the ages of 13 and 16 in boys, and from 12 to 15 in girls, and ends in the attainment of sexual maturity…” [Exact Quote.] It then lists the changes that occur.
SO JUST WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE INTERVENING 50-plus YEARS TO OUR KIDS WHILE WE WATCHED DVDs, DRANK LATTES, SENT OUR BABIES TO GOVERNMENT-APPROVED “DAY CARE”, HOISTED A FEW BREWSKIES, DECIDED GOVERNMENT-RUN PUBLIC SCHOOLS WERE OKAY, WELCOMED SOCIALISM WITH WIDELY OPENED ARMS (GIMMEE. GIMMEE.), AND BOUGHT INTO EVERY CONCOCTED CONFLICTED CONSOLING LIE THEY TOSSED AT US? HUH?
I AM ASKING A QUESTION HERE.
One Answer – ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS: Defined as any substance, natural or synthesized, that can bind with, accelerate, diminish, or block a natural hormone’s function. And right now, right here we are particularly focusing on Estrogen-like disruptors, the very ones that are turning our boys into lazy, unhealthy, breasted he/shes.
And don’t think your daughters are off scott free, either. These very same estrogen-like hormone disruptors are being blamed for premature puberty and periods, fibroids, irregular periods, miscarriages, and a whole host of other female problems, including breast cancer as the girls age.
