It never ceases to amaze me what doctors/scientists will think of  to “study” next.  

A recent article in the European Journal of Pediatrics found that teenage boys living at LOW elevations, within a few hundred feet of sea level, are more prone to develop acne than boys living at higher altitudes.  Also living at high altitudes can delay puberty in girls and boys.  

So I guess when you have kids, and you live in Florida, you may be in for a bout of zits and early anxiety. 

Although, I must say as a plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, I haven't noticed an unusual number of outbreaks of either.
