Puberty Before Age 10

There are 6 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Apr 1, 2012, titled Puberty Before Age 10. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

One day last year when her daughter, Ainsley, was 9, Tracee Sioux pulled her out of her elementary school in Fort Collins, Colo., and drove her an hour south, to Longmont, in hopes of finding a satisfying reason that Ainsley began growing pubic hair at age 6. Ainsley was the tallest child in her third-grade class.

Its all due to the excessively chemicalised food that we are consuming, at the same time ozees look like old people due to the same fact.

Sounds like the mother in this story is a neurotic bitch. I put this in the category of 1st-world- problems. All she has succeeded in doing is making her daughter feel abnormal.

Its part of what vaccines are doing to our children, disrupting the endocrine system. Causes transgender too.

I am not expert, but if we continue eating highly chemicalized food combined with global warming, we are soon to start seeing plagues breaking out.

Maybe whatever is in the water and our food played a part but maybe it didn't and since the girl does not appear to be ill, I think the mother needs to get over it. I know a couple of females who got their periods at 9 years of age and they were 9 many years ago (one of them before vaccinations were even common) and they both grew up normally - so the mother should not presume that this is necessarily a sign of some illness.
