Study Shows that Early Puberty is Now Affecting Boys, Just Like Girls

The mystery surrounding why girls have been experiencing puberty at younger ages still hasn’t been solved, and now new research shows that the same thing is happening to boys.
Researchers have found signs of puberty in American boys up to two years earlier than previously reported — age 9 on average for blacks, 10 for whites and Hispanics (puberty is considered early in boys if it occurs by age 9 or earlier) . The study was published online in Pediatrics to coincide with the American Academy of Pediatrics’ national conference in New Orleans.
