I like Bethsunshine also believe that the hormones in the foods have to do with early puberty. I actually believe it is a combination of environment, (suggestive clothing for young kids, images on TV, etc) and the hormone induced foods. My son at 9 (he just turned 9) has full blown boy BO and HAS to wear deodorant daily. My daughter 8 (she just turned 8) has the occasional facial blemish and also has started to developed in the chest area. I have a half-sister that is 8 as well and my step Mom and I were discussing it recently as well. She also has noticed development of her daughter's, my half sister's, breast. Last week I read in the local paper a connection between depression and chicken. It's not only in our food, but in our drinking water as well. Drinking water is polluted with medicine and chemicals. Oh and for the chicken...I'm not so sure it's the chicken itself, IMO, it's most likely what the chicken eats.
