    Puberty often described with hyperbole?

    I'm curious about whether the common description of male puberty (as a period of excessive arousal and disproportionate libido relative to adulthood) is a functional hyperbole, or if people actually did experience a time of additional libido followed by a levelling off. I experienced puberty as...

    Alzheimer's Severity Tied to Longer Estrogen Exposure in Women

    A neat study, which somehow managed to slip through my "radar" when it was first published the middle of last (2021) year. The study is pretty straighforward in its claim that longer exposure to endogenous estrogen was associated with exacerbated/higher biomarkers of Alzheimer disease (AD), as...

The study below demonstrates that children who have experienced violence, trauma, deprivation or have had generally stressful childhoods not only enter puberty much earlier but are...

    Stress (from Poverty) Leads To Early Puberty And Health Problems In Adulthood

    I recently posted a study on the effects of pregnancy stress (cortisol) on the development and aging of an organism. Chronic Stress During Pregnancy Accelerates Fetal Aging And Harms Its Health Peat also wrote that virtually all features of aging can be produced by administering a large dose of...

    Slower Metabolism In Puberty, Not Lifestyle, Causes Teen Obesity

    Ray has written about how children have fast metabolism and are much harder to make obese than adults. He also wrote that delaying puberty has beneficial effects on health and metabolism, largely due to the delay of getting adrenals involved in metabolism. In adults, adrenals are usually in...
