Accelerated Puberty Rates

An alarming new study released by the American Academy of Pediatrics revealed that boys are beginning puberty much sooner than before. Researchers from the University of North Carolina found that boys are now reaching puberty as early as 9 years old, when 30 years ago the average was 11 to 12 years of age. The Doctors discuss the possible causes of the increase in early puberty rates.
