Have you ever heard your mom or dad say that someone’s hormones were raging? The comment is usually uttered when a teenager is grumpy for no apparent reason. Although it’s true that certain hormones increase during adolescence, your endocrine system has been making them your entire life!
"Have You Ever Wondered What Hormones Do?" is from the April 16, 2017 Health & Science section of The Washington Post. It was written by Howard J. Bennett and narrated by Sam Scholl.
