Your Call: What's causing early puberty in girls?

Jun 4, 2015

On the June 4th edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation about why girls are entering puberty earlier than ever before? We’ll talk with Doctors Louise Greenspan and Julianna Deardorff, authors of The New Puberty: How to Navigate Early Development in Today's Girls. Just a generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today that percentage has more than doubled.  Why is this happening, and what can we do to help girls through this major transition? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
