Exactly. Something is affecting our humble bodies in a bad way. And our reproductive organs and systems are extra susceptible to whatever chemical onslaught is going on. The most helpless we are is as a rapidly developing fetus.
I am so sorry about your pet! Aw. We switched away from dry kibbles back then and now feed only mostly organic and non big cheap commercial brands. It’s scary.
“...Lots of kids are hitting puberty earlier now then they used to. Lots of factors involved with that I’m sure. But I agree something is wrong. Maybe lack of exercise, hormones in the water supply, sexual exposure at a younger age via the media, ... perhaps all of these factors. And yes, Autism and autism spectrum disorder have significantly increased. They’ve ruled out vaccines as a cause, but something is going on...”
My personal theory (with nothing to back it up, just a gut feeling) is the amount of hormones fed to cattle, chickens, etc. I have a hunch these are in our food chain, causing early onset puberty, among other effects.
Recently, an 8 y/o girl presented in our ER with asthma. Though only 8, she had nearly fully developed breasts. Our ER doctor (a woman) was stunned. The staff had an interesting discussion. Seems we are seeing more and more of these changes in our youth. Something is definitely happening to our kids.
