A U.S. study found that white and Latina girls are beginning puberty at a much younger age than they were more than a decade ago, suggesting that the average age for the onset of puberty in these girls may still be changing. Researchers said they observed breast development by age 7 in almost 15% of the Latina girls and in more than 10% of the white girls who participated in the study.
