Sex Hormones Found To Have Little Or No Effect
Professor Howard Kulin of Pennsylvania's State College of Medicine has conducted a research program which gave 55 adolescents with delayed puberty, sex hormones over a two year period.
The results "certainly disagree with the common perception of millions of parents over the years," says Professor Kulin. He claims his research shows that peer pressure and other factors are more significant factors and that "It is a great oversimplification to blame behavior solely on hormones."
The report also adds that although there was "little impact", although some participants did experience:
A significant increases in nocturnal emission and touching behavior (boys)
An increase in necking (girls)
Perhaps if these effects are considered trivial the next logical step in Professor Kulin's program might include studying how Viagra might effect teenage boys?
