New study links absent dads and early puberty in girls‎

Girls growing up in higher-income homes without a biological father are likely to reach puberty earlier than others, new research finds.

“In higher-income families, father absence predicted earlier puberty, but it did not in lower-income, father-absent [households],” said study leader Julianna Deardorff.

“Girls in upper-income households without a father were at least twice as likely to experience early onset of puberty, as demonstrated by breast development,” she said. The researchers defined higher income as $50,000 or more a year.
