Adair, Linda S. (2001). Size at Birth Predicts Age at Menarche. Pediatrics, 107(4)
Objective: This study examines the relationship of intrauterine growth, measured by size and maturity at birth, to age at menarche, while also considering a wide range of other factors that may affect maturation. The research is motivated by the current debate about the importance of the prenatal environment as a determinant of later disease risk.
