Heard an interview on NPR Fresh Air with Terry Gross which mentioned a possible physical problem that seems connected with girls who are raised by single parents. Girls raised by single parents enter puberty earlier than their peers. Children are entering puberty earlier these days as a whole. The book is actually about breasts which are now bigger than they used to be and fuels of toxic chemicals. Some of the reasons thought responsible are diet and the rising obesity rates. Plastics might be connected as they simulate estrogen when they enter the human body. Chemicals can even enter a body through the chemicals in printed shopping receipts. This connects with children of divorce, of course, who must shop twice as much
because they belong to two households.

The researcher/writer interviewed was Florence Williams. Her book is called “Breasts.” .

Here’s an article which describes some of the findings by researchers regarding stressful childhoods and early puberty. 6 year olds are said to be most vulnerable to stress in the home. This correlates with the age of the first Jupiter opposition and maybe the first secondary progressed lunar opposition. Jupiter is connected with growth and the moon is connected with female
reproductive system. Girls who have fathers who have psychological problems such as addiction, alcoholism, suicide, etc. Also develop more quickly.

Kids from Divorced families will go either in opposite directions regarding how their diet. Lack of supervision and eating alone brings this out.  Kids seem to either become hypervigilant about taking care of themselves through their diet or will, like me, become almost abusive to their bodies.

If you’re one of the ones who doesn’t eat right and is compulsively addicted to sugar I can only recommend one diet tip that I have found so far.  This is to be sure to eat Protein in the morning.  Eat it along with Carbohydrates and Fats.  Eggs or Cheese with some kind of Spinach or Tomatoes and buttered toast is great.  When I do this I find that I make better eating choices through the rest of the day.  Protein burns slowly and the Carbs burn quickly so one fills you up fast and the other sustains you. Always try to eat a few different types of food at the same time.  If you don’t know what’s healthy and what’s not healthy educate yourself.  Unfortunately potato chips are unhealthy and they taste extremely good.

I’ve recently found another secret to the sugar problem.  You can eat sugar, but just don’t eat a lot of it.  And don’t eat it with anything high in Calcium.  According to a Nutritionist named Dr. Nancy Appleton the chemistry between sugar and calcium creates a toxicity in the body to which some people are abnormally sensitive to.  It can create digestive problems or even nervous disorders which can become really bad if you’re living in a stressful environment.  I’ve always been a nail biter.  Early on I started clipping my fingernails but continued to bite the cuticles around them.  And then again almost my entire diet was Milk products and sugar.  I was using the cheese and milk to calm myself down from all the sugar I was eating!  Dr. Appleton’s website is http://www.nancyappleton.com.  She explains the chemistry very well.    This actually means that foods like yogurt mixed with sugary berries can be bad for you so it’s kind of an odd attitude towards diet.
