Plastic Accelerates Puberty

April 5, 2012 by  

Plastic Accelerates Puberty
PHOTOS.COM
The age at which kids are entering puberty is becoming younger and younger.

Every year, kids are entering puberty earlier and earlier. Cases have been cited of girls showing signs of puberty as early as age 4. Doctors have been quick to blame the scapegoat in the throat, otherwise known as the thyroid gland. However, the chemical Bisphenol A, commonly referred to as BPA, may be the culprit.

BPA is found in plastic bottles and cans. It is even in dollar bills and toilet paper.

The chemical is a devious one. Once it is in the body, it imitates estrogen. This can cause a hormonal imbalance which may be the reason for the early onset of puberty.

As our society finds ways to get things done in a hurry, our bodies are doing the same.

    OK, class pay close attention. A gold star to whoever gets the answer. WHAT can replace plastic, create millions of JOBS and put MDs, economists and politicians in their place? Remember, anything that smacks of OIL is BAAAAAD. Right? And The Anointed Putzer and all elected utopians HATE oil – right? All of their lemming sheeples hate oil – right?
    So, WHAT can REPLACE plastic and do so much GOOD for the country? That’s right, class. H E M P !
    Now, if we could just get Uncle Scam to admit that he’s worse than wrong. He claims to HATE oil, but he’s not creating JOBS, and that nasty PLASTIC is making people sick (kids, too).
    The CURE is HEMP [the 'other' CURE is a new face in the W H, and I DON'T mean Motormouth Joe].

    • Sirian

      Watch out s c, you’re gonna have a ton of crazed environmentalists come seething for you scalp. . . :) Oh, wait a minute, I get it, so now we know why so many women eagerly step early into the peaceful years of Menopause – or should it be Womenopause, uh where’s Sandra Fluke?

      • Karolyn

        I don’t get your comment, Sirian. Why would environmentalists object to s c’s post?

      • Robert Smith

        Hey Sirian…

        From the article: “Once it is in the body, it imitates estrogen.”

        With so much estrogen going into the bodies of young boys do you think it might be contributing to why so many of them turn out gay?

        Thus… Hold onto your seat!

        Being gay isn’t a choice, it’s plastics.

        Rob

      • Steve

        actually it should be men-on-pause….and a hernia should really be a hisnia.:-)

      • Sirian

        Karolyn,
        Re-read s c’s comment. You’ve missed the sarcasm. Very good sarcasm – that’s why I tossed in a touch of humor, if you may take it as that.

      • eddie47d

        This is my second comment Sirian in case you missed the first. I’ll tell you why I said that if it will be necessary. Environmentalists have been warning the public about these dangerous chemicals for 50 years. They are not the enemy and their early warning signals were sent up and then shot down. Maybe more folks should have listened.

      • Sirian

        Alright eddie, where’s your first comment? Looking over all comments on this page does not reveal any other comments from you other than the this one that I am responding to. Unless it has been posted within the last minute or two.

      • Karolyn

        Robert – Interesting thought.

      • JDL

        It would also explain why there are so many effeminate men these days and no, I’m not referring to gay men, I am referring to the many who are psychologically wired like women but think they are heterosexual.

      • http://naver samurai

        There is no way for you to prove that Rob. Remember, being gay is a choice and nothing else. Why did you bring the queers into the debate? I don’t forsee the connection between estrogen and being gay. Neeeeed to be making that popping sound. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Robert Smith

        samurai, samurai, samuai… I see your courage in the face of mounting evidence and trump it with reality. You staunchly posted: “Remember, being gay is a choice and nothing else.”

        This thread is about the hormones that are allegedly accellerating puberty in little girls.

        Those same hormones as a part of the same stroke wouldn’t give a boy any more choice in how he is impacted than the girl has a choice.

        Rob

      • http://naver samurai

        Rob, Rob, Rob, why with the same nonsense that cannot be proven? Since there is no gay gene, but there is no proof of hormones leading to being gay. Neeeeed to be making that popping sound. Second, my stand against marijuana is still firm. I;m only against it as far as illegal drug use and use by children. I’ve never said anything else. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Walt

      For whatever it’s worth, corn cellulous is being successfully converted into all manner of plastics in the packaging industry. So the misconception that only oil based plastics can be manufactured is erroneous.

    • http://naver samurai

      As long as it isn’t for recreational use and kept away from kids, OK. Don’t need to see people walking down the street flying high as a kite. Such people are a disgrace to this country. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • David169

      I don’t think the majority of blame goes to plastics. It is a well known fact that almost all animals (as opposed to poultry) being finished for market are injected with a pellet of diethylstilbesterol (spelled phonetically) which is a powerful estrogen. This is done to accelerate the softening of the muscles and accelerate the weight gain. One pellet is all that is supposed to be used, but if one is good four is better and makes more money.

  • Karolyn

    For liquids we could go back to glass and refunds for bottle returns, but are people too lazy these days for that?

    • Sirian

      I understand what you’re saying and yes, glass is very good for liquids – much better actually. But in reality it comes down to dollars and cents – production costs. It is much more costly to produce glass bottles over plastic bottles. Glass doesn’t breath like plastic so you don’t have to worry with whatever is inside losing it’s “quality”. Plastic bottles have a shelf life of about three months max. along with their inherit trait of leaching. That is controllable by the wall thickness of the bottle but there we go again, added cost for thicker walls to prevent leaching. So, be it as it may, it’s the overall production costs that has more or less eliminated glass from being as commonly seen in solid, liquid or gas products. You can produce a thousand plastic bottles for the same cost of only one hundred glass bottles. The primary cost of plastic bottles lies within the molds, not the plastic. I worked at a glass plant for eight years. We were producing “disposable glass bottles” – 10oz.,16oz. – on a grand scale but even so, the demand for them continued down hill. We could go back to them but again, it all comes down to dollars and cents. Would you be willing to pay an extra dollar for a 2 liter bottle of pop, plus deposit and put up with the added weight of the bottle – 3.5 lbs? Pay an extra 1.50 for a gallon of milk? Up to you. . .

      • Karolyn

        Well, I would think that if you calculate in the increaed healthcare costs resulting from the chemicals going into our bodies, it would be worth it to switch to glass. Would it involve more jobs? If so, that would increase the money going into the economy. I love it when I have the opportunity to purchase iced tea or juice in glass bottles. There are some eco and health conscious companies that still use glass.

      • Wumingren

        I agree with Karolyn on this one. I only buy beverages that come in glass containers, and there are many to choose from. The thing is, I haven’t been doing this because of the issue with BPA (which I don’t discount); I have been doing this because I prefer the feel of the cold glass on my lips. I like the wide-mouth bottles that many iced tea brands use, and whether it is tea, carbonated beverages, or beer, everything tastes better from a glass bottle than from a plastic one.

      • ChuckL

        Glass bottles can be washed, sterilized and reused at a cost that is lower than plastic when the total life cycle cost of the plastic is considered.

        They can also be recovered from trash recycle centers if the “deposit system” is not used.

    • Johnny

      Boys, it looks like Ms Karolyn has done her homework. 1) I have been in the feed industry for 30 yes, these hormones you speak of are not the culprit. BST (bovine somatatrophin) is used sparingly for increased milk production. The soybean meal we consume contains twice as much than milk. 2) when I grew up in the 60′s girls just did not have BOOB’s. They had hickory nuts. Boys would have fights over girls. 3). Young men don’t have the drive they once had. Coaches will tell you players will quit on you if you work them the least bit. So, I don’t know the solution, but we do have a problem.

      • Robert Smith

        Hi Johnny,

        I hear that Mary was 12 or 13 when she got knocked up and had a kid when she was on the road with Joe.

        “She married Joseph and accompanied him to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.[3] In keeping with Jewish custom, the betrothal would have taken place when she was around 12, and the birth of Jesus about a year later.[8]”

        From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_(mother_of_Jesus)

        That looks pretty young to me. So, what’s changed today?

        Rob

      • Brad

        Hey RS,

        Didn’t you know that all wiki sites are bad reference points, they tend to allow nonfactual and edited information in clouding other true sourses of information. In my opinion your point is worthless proving you have zero credability.

      • http://teamlaw.org Jazzabelle

        Girls going into puberty at age four. Duh. Didn’t you read the article?

        Twelve or thirteen has been old enough (on the average) to conceive a baby for all of recorded history.

      • http://naver samurai

        SSDD, eh Rob? You can never pass up the chance to make personal attacks on Christianity. Though it is those beliefs that we are founded on. Ergo, you are against our country’s founding beliefs. Neeeeed to be making that popping sound. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. Sook Young tells me that her people used to marry off their daughters at 15-16 years old. It was their custom to do so. Have anything to say about that? How about Muhammed’s last wife being a mere 8-9 years old? Have anything to say about that?

    • JDL

      We could also get rid of those awful plastic grocery bags. I never did understand why paper bags were switched for crappy plastic. They are non-functional at best.

      • Robert Smith

        I’ll stand at the register with my card in one hand and cash in the other and ask the clerk, “Paper or plastic.”

        One poor girl called her supervisor.

        Rob

      • http://teamlaw.org Jazzabelle

        Hilarious, Rob.

        Paper switched to plastic because people were throwing the paper away instead of recycling it. And since the bags were ending up in landfills regardless, they went with the plastic since the plastic bags took up less space in the landfills. Apparently it was an environmentally driven thing. *shrug*

    • http://naver samurai

      I can agree with you on this one Karolyn. I still can remember our mother returning soda bottles when she shopped at Krogers. Also, couldn’t this also mean less trash in the streets, parks, and on the ground? I don’t forsee someone throwing away something they would get money for. My mom used to get 10 cents for every bottle returned. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Karolyn

    This is news. I was under the impression that the hormones in our food are what accelerates puberty. What a sad state of affairs. I’m sure glad I’m not a kid these days. As a matter of fact, the reason I never had kids was because I feared for their future. It has come to pass; and I am happy with my choice.

    • Jim jiminey

      I too believe that the growth hormones it all the animal products in this country is as much, if not more at play in the contribution to accelerated “growth”. It’s the only logical conclusion you can come to.
      If it accelerates growth and physical maturity in animals, how the heck can it not do that in humans?

      • phoenix

        people seem to have forgotten the old adage, “you are what you eat.” sure the growth hormones seemed good for the cows’ milk production, for the chickens’ meatier breasts. but…they forgot…you are what you eat. quite literally. oh what good is science anyway… ;)

        You can’t handle the truth Rob. people tend to attack someone or something when they tell the truth and people are affraid of the truth. This must be why you attack Christianity, the Bible, God, etc., so much, because they tell the truth and you are just to ignorant and scared to understand. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Brad

      Maybe we all should stop and take a closer look at what BPA is doing us generationaly speaking. http://www.baumhedlundlaw.com/bpa/bpa_side_effects.php

  • Ken

    Folks, before we leap to another ‘scientific’ conclusion about a reported trend, where is the supporting data? Say, surveys demonstrating more preteen pubers as versus ten and twenty years ago with supporting trend analysis. Or, perhaps a demonstrated rise in preteen pregnancy? Need the facts people before we start raging through the streets.

    • Karolyn

      Ken – Haven’t we seen enough? It’s pretty obvious that girls are developing earlier. Just go to any school, and you see it right in front of you. All the chemicals we absorb into our bodies have to be doing something. We certainly can’t believe that they’re doing nothing. I’m sure if we google it, we can come up with some info that backs up the BPA claim.

      • Ken

        Sorry Karolyn; Nothing out there in Google land that even remotely approaches valid confirmed results. While, I admit that it has been a great many years since I have visited a elementary school for any reason I really doubt that girls are any more prone to rapid pubescent onset than were the young ladies that were my classmates in the late ’50s…

        I would suggest that the clothes and the makeup have a lot more to do with this perception and if all you are going to use are your eyes as evidence then you are surely going to be mistaken,

      • Karolyn

        Clothes and makeup have nothing to do with curves and early sexual awakening.

      • Karolyn

        Ken – You must have missed the site I have posted below, and there are many more.
        http://www.ourstolenfuture.org/newscience/oncompounds/bisphenola/bpauses.htm

      • Robert Smith

        Karolyn says: “It’s pretty obvious that girls are developing earlier.”

        I’m not so sure. Girls were often married at 12 or 13 and having kids quickly a couple of centuries ago.

        Could the issue be that with training bras, seductive clothing, makeup, and all the other stuff that goes into creating the image of young girls as objects of desire that we are responding to that?

        What do doctors say? When hormone levels are actually measured and secondary sex things start to appear (hair for instance) is that changing?

        Rob

      • Robert Smith

        Karolyn posted: “Clothes and makeup have nothing to do with curves and early sexual awakenig.”

        You haven’t seen any previews of “Todlers and Tieras” have you?

        Those kids are learning how to be manapulative with their appearance at very young ages. During the 70′s I photographed some of those “contests.” It was awful to watch mommy pushing the kid and then the kid working others to get what they want. The whole thing was twisted.

        But, that’s social, not chemical.

        Rob

        • Karolyn

          Rob – That’s a whole nother issue. Those little girls have no clue what they’re doing and have not physically matured yet.

        Wait. You’re opposed to people using their “eyes as evidence,” but you’re the one talking about clothes and makeup. And, while you’re refusing to use your eyes as evidence, you have nothing to replace them with except … assumptions. “While, I admit that it has been a great many years since I have visited a elementary school for any reason I really doubt that girls are any more prone to rapid pubescent onset than were the young ladies that were my classmates in the late ’50s.” So you have no idea what you’re talking about, you admit it, you admit that you’ve failed to find any objective facts on the matter … and you’re determined to reject the only data you think there is (observation). You seem really messed up to me, Ken.

      • JDL

        I disagree with Ken. I have seen it as young as three. And you’re using ‘google’ as the quintessential expert? Really…

    • Ellen

      Ken, None of this is news. Our government has been mulling over outlawing BPA for a few years and has decided it is safe. As far as the early puberty, that has been studied for several years now. In Hispanic and black girls, puberty is starting in 2nd grade. It is still 6th grade or later for most whites. Second grade is far too young for girls to understand managing a period. Clearly, we’re causing all sorts of problems with our plastics, vaccinations, drugs in our water, flouride in our water, etc. We tend to get caught up in our lives and don’t comprehend the issues that have been brewing. Most people living in 3rd world countries are healthier than us – as long as they have access to clean water. They don’t need braces or glasses; they don’t have high cholesterol or heart problems; they don’t have diabetes; they aren’t overweight; they don’t have cancer; etc. They don’t have access to health care, yet they are completely healthy. If you doubt this, go on a mission trip with any church to Honduras or much of Central America or a country in Africa. We’re always lead to believe we are healthier because we have access to good food, clean water and health care. Instead, we’re causing our own health problems with chemicals.

  • Chester

    Could it be that earlier puberty has more to do with earlier obesity than plastic? It is a proven fact that fat cells increase the estrogen in circulating in the human body, so isn’t it possible that this is as much the source for the accelerated rates of puberty as any chemicals leaching from any plastic? Do some quiet study before flying off the handle at any source.

    • Karolyn

      That would not explain all the thin sexy little girls with curves I see walking around on a daily basis.

  • Terry

    Intersting ideas you all shared. I wonder if decreasing levels of testosterone in men and the observed increasing levels of estrogen in men is also caused by plastics? This chemical exposure issue could be far more significant that the article title/subject suggests.

    • Robert Smith

      As I mentioned earlier in the thread… With all the chemicals claimed being gay isn’t a choice. It’s all that estrogine.

      And when you think about it where does all that stuff come from? It’s BIG BUSINESS that is the cause of all those gay guys.

      Why does the extreme right support big business if it causes gays?

      I’ll still eat the meat from a castrated bull and then get some AndroGel from my doctor. There, I can eat my steak and have girls too! What a country America is.

    • Johnny

      Karolyn, thanks for your excellent research. BPA may be part of the cause. I do recognize the problem. Some of it may be that many young girls today are on birth control. But, that doesn’t explain the super flat stomachs, enhanced breast size and cokebottle figures. Look at pics of Marilyn Monroe. She is not in the same league as some of these current 16 year-olds. So what’s up? Keep searching.

      • Robert Smith

        For us older guys you are so wrong Johnny: “Look at pics of Marilyn Monroe. She is not in the same league as some of these current 16 year-olds.”

        Those current 16 year-olds aren’t in the same league she was in.

        Same thing for Bettie Page. Definately a league of her own. Golly gee I’m glad I have testosterone.

  • Jon

    I am fairly certain that the Administrations answer to this, after awarding some group $10B to study it, will be to outlaw puberty and make it a crime for any girl to wear a bra before the age of 12. In the meantime, they will award the plastic companies a $200B bailout for the lowered stock prices. They can pay for it by fining the oil companies that produce the petroleum the plastic is made from.

    • http://teamlaw.org Jazzabelle

      Ha!

    So I assume that this puberty accelerating plastic is why people feel they need to put bikini’s on their 3 yr old girls?

      • http://naver samurai

        No Karolyn, Sook Young and I don’t not agree with having them wear bikinis. But this may have nothing to do with chemicals, just women being something other than a good mother. Such women ought to be b slapped and brought back into reality. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Earl

        One thing I’ve noticed here…..Everyone is barking up the bis phenol-a tree, while totally ignoring another more important factor. That is PHYTOESTROGEN, which is an estrogen mimic, and it is found in SOYBEANS which in addition to appearing in some form in most human foods, is used heavily in animal feed. Plastics do contribute, but Soy is the main factor….Don’t expect the soybean industry to admit it anytime soon…Money talks and BS, well,…………. you know the expression……….Hope this clears the air!

        • Karolyn

          Yes, there is far too much soy in the American diet thanks to Big Agra. The only good soy is fermented.

  • Bill

    Just a comment or two. One thing that has been said and I don’t remember who said it was that a couple hundred years ago girl were getting married and having kids at 12 and 13. From talking to those that lived not 200 years ago but back in the early 1900′s, that remember hearing the stories of their Mothers and Grandmothers. And of course statictics the average life span back then was 45 to 50. So you had to get married earlier in life just to have a family. God provides the ways and means for human survival. If you were not married by the time you were 18 to 20 you were considered an old maid.
    Second It is proven that plactics leach chemicals in it foods. Styrofoam is a form of plastic and is not used by fast food companies because of this. There are some places around that do but the big ones do not. They went back to … wait for it…. PAPER. Something that needs to be done more and more. Now I know the enviromentalists will be all over me for that one. But if you look at it it is a safer issue for the world. We will not be filling the landfills with something that will not disappear. And maybe we will plant more trees, unless some whack job thinks that is bad for us.
    And for those that have never tasted something like milk or tea or ??? that has been made or stored in only glass, try it and you will taste a difference. You taste only the natural flavors nothing added.

      Actually hemp would work very well, it grows fast, and it’s good for the soil when crops are rotated. That will minimize the need for chemical fertalizers, etc.

    So why doesn’t the Congress and Senate do something to control the FDA and ban this horrible substance… This website wants you to think that it is the Obama administration and not the controlling law makers that continue to allow the poisoning of our citizens…

    • http://teamlaw.org Jazzabelle

      The FDA is a big part of the problem, and they were created by Congress. Get it? Congress creates the problems. Giving them more power to “solve” the problems will only make the problems worse.

      Get the FDA off everyone’s backs (yes, including the mega-corps), and people will stop having the illusion that their food and food containers are “safe” when they obviously aren’t. Private organizations will spring up to evaluate the manufacturers, and people will be able to make informed decisions on their own. The market, if it is free, will punish those who poison our food.

    WHO CANNOT SEE THE CONNECTION? I’ve been saying this for years – hormones in our food and plastics entering every child – man or woman. So a male has more female hormones (high voices, feminine traits) and you don’t think this has something to do with the increased GAY population? – mostly in males.

    Messing with hormones has serious repurcussions – both to males and females.

      Since being gay is a choice, the increased hormones are not a factor. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        And we all know, samurai, that with your scientific credentials, we can count on this being fact? Since you base your assumption on the Bible, it annot be proven.

        Since there is no gay gene and hormones have not been proven with anything gay, your arguement falls flat on its face Karolyn. You attacking the Bible like that really shows your arrogance and ignorance. The personal attack. Classic liberal strategy. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Karolyn

        The validity of the Bible can’t be proven either, samurai. Why would what I said be considered an attack? I’m just stating a fact. You cannot prove your position either.

      • http://naver samurai

        Here goes Karolyn attacking the Bible by saying it can’t be proven. I shall not answer such a bald faced lie like that. Understanding the choice to be gay doesn’t need any scientific training. Care to cite a source showing the Bible cannot be proven correct or what I said about hormones is false? Don’t answer unless you post a source with it. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    I know from personal experience that hormones in food, such as soy products, milk, and plastics do cause hormonal changes in young men. Our doctor did tests on my son and found him to have high levels of estrogen causing him to develop breasts in his early teens. We switched to a local goat milk producer who sold it in glass. I have a friend whose daughter just turned 4 and her pediatrician told her to cut down on the milk and use glass as she has developed breasts and some hair…too young for a 4 yr old???? We no longer use plastics for food storage, and I don’t buy from manufacturers products that sell them in plastic. Consumers can be the trend Karolyn speaks of when you so-called “boycott” products, they will sell less and will finally listen to the consumer and go back to the glass bottles. Paper and glass is the more economical way to go. I don’t remember high prices on a gal of milk when I was growing up to be more expensive than I pay now. So where are these high prices coming from if plastic is supposed to be cheaper?

    Unbelievable. Thanks to the fast food mentality(we want everything now, now, now, now), children are suffering the consequences from our idiocy. And watch, all the ego geeks and planet(Or eco twirps and planet pests) are pretty much going to say that this article is a lie.
