One of the important reasons I talk about estrogenics is our kids. There's a disturbing trend downward in the age of puberty around the world. Probably the best indicator of the onset of puberty in girls is breast development. And the mean age is younger in the more developed countries like the U.S. where it's about age 9.5, than it is in, say, Africa, where it's about 11.6 years old. They found that every decade from 1977 to 2013, the onset of puberty happened 3 months earlier. And the age is dropping in boys too.

That means earlier changes to their bodies, curiosity, interest in sex, hormone-driven risky behaviors, a shortened childhood... You ready to have your grammar school kid turn into a brooding teenager? Not to mention adverse health issues, increased incidence of depression, increased likelihood of teenage... forget teenage pregnancy--this could be pediatric pregnancy! They already have precious little life experience as a kid before they get the power to make another kid! This isn't a good trend. What's going on here?

Well, I'm sure there are several contributing factors to the new kiddie puberty. But lets focus in on one. And I'm going to suggest it could be you feeding it to them! But that's great!! Because that means if you're the one doing it, you can change it! Let's talk about food dyes.

Do you know what tartrazine is? It's also called FD&C Yellow 5, yellow lake 5, food yellow 4, or acid yellow 23. It's been classified as a xenoestrogen. Strongly estrogenic.
