Early puberty in girls linked to obesity ... again
Confirming previous research, a new study reports that early onset puberty in girls is linked to overweight and obesity. This isn't totally surprising, since obesity can alter the levels of reproductive hormones, prompting the body into premature puberty. Still, the implications are important, given that overweight and obesity in children has increased markedly in recent decades — and given the number of health problems that are linked to excess body weight across a lifetime.
