Early Puberty Possible Causes

Updated on April 17, 2013

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 ."

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:



Calcium Caseinate

Monosodium Glutamate

Hydrolized Vegetable Protein

Textured Protein

Monopotassium Glutamate

Hydrolized Plant Protein

Yeast Extract


Autolyzed Plant Protein

Yeast Food or Nutrient

Glutamic Acid

Sodium Caseinate

Autolyzed Yeast

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.

    If I recall correctly hormones are supposed to make the animals grow faster, so it wouldn't be surprising if it had the same effects on humans.

    We talked about it once in class, but it was a long time ago.

    Just have to point out that some of the studies involving these things aren't very scientific. You could take many substances that are natural and pump a rat full of them and eventually, something bad will happen. It's very similar to the studies that said marijuana was a killer drug where they would take monkeys and essentially suffocate them and then say, "well looks like this is deadly". Our lives are about balance I and strongly encourage that we question these corporate heavy weights that seem to be above the law in many regards. However we must also not take every study where they pump a rat full of a chemical until it bursts as proof that we should never use these substances. There are many problems in this country and our health is a big one but the fact that most people don't want to accept is that they simply, 1. eat too much and 2. don't exercise.

    Very informative and useful. Sad that most consumers don't care to even read the (inaccurate) labels to see what they're consuming.

    I think it's because the Chinese don't drink as much milk as Americans do.

    Sometimes I think the "Rapture" will only come when the cattle are fattened enough for the human eating aliens to return to reap the crop.

    Voted up and interesting.

    "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?'"

    Excellent question. There's also speculation that artificial lighting at night contributes to early puberty. In the past, going to bed shortly after sundown may have delayed puberty a bit.

    Great informative Hub. Every time I read stuff like this I feel sad, angry, powerless and concerned for our future. Thanks for sharing.

    Great Hub! It's amazing how much crap they add to our food. I can't believe it is legal and endorsed by the FDA. I'm not surprised though! Well researched-great job!

    Mr. Gadget - up we are all awash in chemicals. It's just that the frogs are the first to go. Hint: you know those stickly labels that are on fruit? Well - if the strawberries have fish genes in them then there is no fruit code - it's just says strawberries - the word being undefined in USA law - the same with the word 'natural' means nothing in advertising!

    If it don't have the fruit label - it's genetic spliced foods.

    Hey that Frankenstein just looks like Jim Carry with makeup.

    Its a great topic and if you want more info go watch Alex Jones youtube channel or Prison

    Whole food system is rigged now fluorides in water and toothpaste, chemical in food and then there is GM food. I some time feel like running away to amazon and live with the tree people.
