Early Puberty Possible Causes
Young American girls are developing secondary sexual characteristics earlier and earlier. Is getting puberty at a younger age a sign of healthy living or a toxic environment? There has always been exotic cases of precocious puberty. The youngest mother was 5 in 1939 from Peru, the 9 year old mother in 1912 and the 11 year old mother in England in 2006.
Today, there is an epidemic of precocious puberty in the United States and the greatest increase of early puberty is among white girls. Should the health industry simply lower what is considered 'normal'? Is there a hidden toxin or hormone that is being ignored by governmental health officials who cater to huge multi-national corporations?
Early puberty has been linked to eating too much red meat, fluoride exposure and hormone-disrupting chemicals and childhood obesity. How can being fat cause the full spectrum of physical changes in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis? Childhood obesity, childhood diabetes and early puberty are symptoms of root environmental causes that are prevalent in the United States today.
"MSG was first identified as a flavor enhancer in 1908 by Professor Kikunae Ikeda of Tokyo University, Japan, who found that soup stocks made from Laminaria japonica (a seaweed which had been added to soups for centuries in Japan), contained high levels of the substance ." wisteme.com
Because MSG causes a very large insulin response, MSG causes diabetic like symptoms of constant hunger and sloth. It is in everything and anything made prepared in the United States. As an excitotoxin, MSG damages neurons. Monosodium Glutamate is hidden under different names because people know that it is not good for your body. The following table are foods than contain MSG 100% of the time:
Hydrolized Vegetable Protein
Hydrolized Plant Protein
Autolyzed Plant Protein
Yeast Food or Nutrient
OK, now some who are reading this article are now asking, if MSG is so bad, how come the Chinese are not as obese than Americans? Perhaps it is because MSG is not the only cause of obesity and diabetes, the two highest childhood epidemics in the new century.
Bovine Growth Hormone recombinant Bovine Somatotropin (rBST), is added to dairy cows for production profits sell milk that is containerized with rBGH. rBGH is legal and approved by the FDA and is in all milk, except for the higher priced gourmet milk than comes from cows not injected with rBGH.
rBGH is a hormone that causes cancer, heart disease and obesity. Again is is all legal and FDA approved. The audacity of global corporations to maintain profits through ignorance of the buying public is the example of Monsanto who is lobbying to outlaw rBGH-Free label claims on milk products.
Some believe that the synthetic cow hormone rBST/rBGH level is childrens drinking milk is part of the cause of early menarche. Steroid hormones cause early puberty in girls.
Exposure to chemicals that mimic estrogen (known as xenoestrogens) is a possible cause of early puberty in girls. Bisphenol A is the xenoestrogen linked to girls' early puberty, cancer and brain damage. After BPA exposure male infant monkeys acted more like female infant monkeys. Chronic low dose exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) induces insulin resistance in adult mice. Canada is considering a ban on BPA.
Perhaps it is the combination of BPA plastic baby bottles containing rBST hormone cow milk is a bigger cause for childhood obesity than MSG is because MSG is world wide, and in non-US countries, infants are breast fed.
If you were to go to your local grocery store and try to buy food without the following bad stuff - you will end up with a whole food diet of vegetable and fruits and no hormone-added buffalo meat. Everything else in the store would be off limits: no chemicals, no trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or colors, no MSG, no antibiotics, no synthetic hormones, no nitrates or nitrites, no acrylamides.
