Katherine Albrecht Interviews Dr. Leonard Sax: Boys Adrift/Girls On the Edge — “What happens when you expose prepubescent children to substances that act like female hormones? Girls go through puberty earlier and boys’ testosterone levels drop.” “Avoid the plastics, and avoid the phthalates.”

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske

“…what happens when you expose prepubescent children to substances that act like female hormones? Girls go through puberty earlier …  and boys’ testosterone levels drop.”

A young man living today has a sperm count about half of what his grandfather’s would have been. He has a testosterone level roughly half of what his grandfather’s would have been at the same age.”

“You find a growing number of young men who prefer video games to girls.”

“Over the last 30 years, the age of onset puberty for girls has continued to drop, and that’s not been true for boys.”

Teenage boys and young men rely on testosterone for a big chunk of their motivation. Girls do not. … Hardworking, driven girls do not have higher levels of any hormone than girls who are less motivated. … And when testosterone levels drop, as they have done … then young men will be less motivated. And they are.”

A girl should not be going through puberty at eight years of age, because those years—7, 8, 9 years of age—those years are very precious years. The brain is plastic prior to the onset of puberty in a way that it is not once puberty has begun. A child before the onset of puberty can learn any language in the world without formal instruction….

Girls who go through puberty earlier are much more likely as teenagers to have anxiety, depression, to be cutting themselves….”

“If your daughter wants to use skin lotion … make sure it doesn’t have the word fragrance in the ingredients (if it’s Johnson and Johnson).”

Avoid the plastics, and avoid the phthalates.”
