It’ll come as no shock you to learn that boys and girls in these modern-day United States, fed on country-fried steroidal chicken breasts and good ol’ American colas, have begun to hit puberty at earlier ages than they ever have before. This might actually be a good thing in some respects, since early adolescence may point to improvements in our overall nutrition (modern people no longer eat straw and pebbles like their 17th-century ancestors), as well as give kids a longer grace period during which to familiarize themselves with their own sexuality. Early puberty may also, unfortunately, give kids a longer bout with the great scourge of adolescent self-esteem, acne.
