Adrenarche: My Explanation and the History of My Explanation
Copyright 2012, March 23, James Michael Howard, Fayetteville, Arkansas, U.S.A.
Recently a number of articles regarding adrenarche have appeared in the literature. In my opinion my work regarding adrenarche should have been cited and explained in these papers. It was not. Google, Google Scholar, and PubMed locate my work readily. My work is clearly years ahead and provides a mechanism. When I approaced the editor of one of the journals, the editor stated: “Apparently, and for whatever reason, your papers have not gained the recognition of the field. Perhaps you were not publishing in the appropriate venue.” It has been my understanding that work published in journals, along with a supporting pattern of published material on the internet, would suffice to establish ownership of my ideas. I never thought I would discover that published work would have to be published in an “appropriate venue” to be accepted. Anyway, the following treatise is about all that remains for me to establish my claim to the explanation of adrenarche. (The “logo” of my website, www.anthropogeny.com , and above, is representative of the development of adrenarche as a result of the increase in testosterone which, I suggest, caused human evolution and human adrenarche.)
