Early Puberty Risks

This article claims to cite health problems caused by early puberty.  They're not.  Those health risks are caused by sexual harassment and abuse, which are increased by early puberty.   The actual health risks of early puberty include stunted growth and endocrine problems.  It's important to clarify causes and effects if you want to solve a problem.  If you want to stop the psychological problems, stop treating 8-year-olds like sexually mature women.  If you want to stop the physical problems, try a moderate diet free of growth hormones and other endocrine disruptors.
