The Falling Age of Puberty Published

The first comprehensive review of the issue, this report outlines how we can reverse the trend.

The Breast Cancer Fund commissions Sandra Steingraber to write The Falling Age of Puberty in U.S. Girls: What We Know, What We Need to Know—the first comprehensive review of the literature on the timing of puberty. Early puberty is a known risk factor for breast cancer and is influenced by a combination of factors, including obesity, environmental chemicals, inactivity, premature birth, formula feeding and more. The report and its accompanying guide outline personal and political actions to reverse the trend.
