28. Ah...I see "Duh!" Magazine has a new issue out.
I've been saying this for years. Noticed it when my daughter was in Middle School. Kids that were 11, 12 years old looked like high school seniors (or older!)

Aside from the obesity and plastics potential causes listed in the article, look at all the hormone-injected beef and crap added to milk and who knows what preservatives and things like aspertame are doing. And, for that matter, the greater amount of RF in our everyday lives from cell phones, laptops, cell towers, etc.
