Chubby Girls reach Puberty Earlier

If you have an overweight 3 year old girl, odds are she’ll be going through puberty at 9, says new research published in the journal of Pediatrics.

higher levels of fat, mean higher levels of estrogen, the female sex hormone. (this goes for men, too). And higher levels of estrogen trigger puberty.

I worked for a time as a childrens fitness instructor, and the numbers of overweight kids I saw was frightening. An Adult has the right to do that to themselves. But to do that to a child is abuse, pure and simple.
