early puberty... whoa!


Has anybody read the news on this latest study - http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38600414/ns/health-kids_and_parenting/ - which talks about girls starting about girls starting puberty earlier?  Something like 10 percent of white girls starting at 7 and 23 percent of blacks girls. It's crazy... and sort of fascinating in a way. They say it might be caused by rising obesity in kids in the US, or hormones in the meat or something. But my little sister was an early bloomer (not THAT early, maybe 9?) and i was late. (She started her periods before me and was quickly outboobing me shortly thereafter. Me... her "big" sister! Not fair, I would cry!). And we were raised on the same diet and she was certainly not obese by any means so what gives? Does anybody have any daughters or know anyone who has started this early?  I can only imagine how hard it must be for these girls. Geeez, makes me appreciate not getting boobs until i was i 10th grade (not at the time though. ha ha)
 
I also thought it was really interesting how in the article they talked about how they put an implant into an 8-yeatr-old girl's skin to slow down puberty. Crazy technology...
