As for boys/males
There are alot more estrogen like chemicals in the things we eat drink and in the general environment
Plasticizers (chemicals that make plastic soft and not brittle are similar in action to estrogen, and have effects on males. They are finding trace levels of birth control hormones in river water, which has had effects on tadpoles, frogs etc (turning some of the population into females
Girls have bigger breasts because a larger number of them are fatter then previous years. Also they are entering puberty earlier which may have an effect on breast size
There's no solid answer behind the steady rise in average breast size, but there are some theories.
Some fashion designers believe that the increase in average breast size is a result of the garment industry. Many clothing manufacturers inflate or deflate sizes according to the times. As all women know, different brands of shoes and clothing fit differently. There's a big difference in a size 10 from two different companies. And as larger breasts have become more fashionable, possibly C cups have been getting smaller so more women can be proud to have a larger than average size.
Some sociologists point to the general weight gain among Americans as the cause of the increase in average breast size. Bigger people, the remind us, tend to have bigger breasts. And as obesity reaches epidemic proportions, the breasts of overweight women keep pace with the rest of them.
A final, and far more terrifying, explanation is that of excessive estrogens in the environment. Due to industrial pollution and widespread use of oral contraceptives, there are high levels of estrogens found in water in many places. In some rivers, fish are dying out because there's so much estrogen in the water that all the fish are born female. In this scenario, average breast size is growing due to this hormonal pollution.
On the other hand, an increasingly safe and effective set of natural breast enlargement solutions has been available for quite some time. We are certain that a significant portion of the increase in average breast size is at least partially due to the widespread availability of reliable breast enlargement solutions.
Nobody knows for certain why girls are entering puberty earlier, but the most popular theory involves insecticides, which can break down into compounds that may have estrogenic activity in young girls, thus triggering the onset of puberty.
Others attribute the drop to in increase in childhood obesity. "My own bias is that a major contributor to earlier puberty is the increasing prevalence of obesity over the past 25 years ... especially in 6- to 11-year-old girls," says Paul Kaplowitz, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Virginia, and author of the LWPES report. "It has long been known that overweight girls tend to mature earlier and thin girls tend to mature later."
Re: the girls, - that's sort of a 'chicken or the egg thing'. (First cattle, now fowl). But my daughter ran and biked EVERYWHERE. Until she 'blossomed'. Suddenly if she so much as walked fast, or even showed up, boys were making fun of her. You can't exercise, you gain weight. She didn't look at it as exercise, she looked at it as living - well, hell. She was 11. She barely looked at it, she just didn't like being called out, made fun of, any of that.
The rest of your post does make my point though. I knew estrogen levels were playing havoc with people.
Our family joke was that she grew up downriver of the power plant, so we blamed that.
There would be many reasons for larger breasts among younger girls, genetics, ect. But being heavier would also be a cause. One woman I know goes from an A cup to a small b cup if she gains 8 lb
Re-read. She gained the weight AFTER she stopped running, jumping, climbing, biking etc, because 'they' were in the way.
The truth is folks. Instead of trying to lose weight, I tried to gain it. That's right. In high school I spend a lot of time at Mcdonalds at the hope of even approaching a weight near my "healthy weight" as the docs called it. I gained .1 pound after three years of effort of eating the worst **** possible, and I was still 30 pounds behind any average weight with my height.
So, no, I don't have big boobs, I'm more like a skeleton.
In a way, the health crisis passed before me like a dream, because I could not even compete had I even wanted to.
My son is the same way, Fiddy. The school can be a bit intrusive about checking to make sure kids bring low calorie snacks to school (yet they serve the most vile junk for lunch). I am waiting for the day someone tells my son his peanut butter granola bar is unacceptable. :chew:
When the day comes that they buy his freaking groceries they can tell you what to freaking feed him.
@#$% nosy bureaucratic elitist busybody knowitall %%#$heads. :mrgreen:
Not all, but a lot of them. I've been noticing at the beach this summer, all the people who *should* be in their prime physical condition walking around with doughy moobs and muffin tops. I cannot believe all the man teets I've seen this summer on otherwise good looking guys. And the young women? Good Lord. Nice thong bathing suit, but I could do without your cottage cheese cheeks in my face.
I honestly don't recall ever seeing 20 somethings so out of shape. There are always a few, but it's like the majority do nothing but play video games and slob off on taco bell all day. What the heck is going on with this generation? Get out and do something physical!
