"Puberty used to occur around age 14, but now has lowered to the age of 10 because of improved health and nutrition in much of the developed world"

"Sawyer said the current definition of adolescence is “overly restricted.” She told the outlet that this social change needs to inform policy, including extending youth support services until the age of 25.

"The ages of 10-24 years are a better fit with the development of adolescents nowadays,” she said."

I thought that puberty at younger ages was a bad thing, due to hormones in our food. Now they are saying its a good thing. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the other news.
