January 9, 2013From evanderholyfield.com – Holyfield. Even somebody with only a mild interest in sports, more specifically boxing, would be familiar with the name.

As of recently, there’s another Holyfield in town, one 23 years his junior, and less than half his physical stature—the “him” in question being, of course, former undisputed World Champion boxer Evander Holyfield. The chatter around Evette Holyfield, the second to oldest of the sports hero’s 11 children, and her countless business ventures—including an upcoming book and workout DVD—is getting louder by the minute. In addition to her entrepreneurial sprit, Evette serves as a motivational speaker to at-risk teenage girls, and has even announced a decision to remain a virgin until marriage.

Atlanta, March 29, 2012 — A just released peer-reviewed, published study found that Choosing the Best, an abstinence-centered sex education curriculum, successfully reduces the initiation of teen sex.   The study, “Impact of Choosing the Best Program in Communities Committed to Abstinence Education” by Lisa Lieberman, Ph.D., was published in the March 21 edition of SAGE Open.

Atlanta, December 8, 2011 — A recent analysis by researchers at the University of Georgia, titled “Abstinence-Only Education and Teen Pregnancy Rates:  Why We Need Comprehensive Sex Education in the U.S.” draws faulty conclusions and offers little help or insight into the complex problem of teen pregnancy and how to solve it. The UGA researchers classified states according to their laws about sex education and found that states that had laws or policies emphasizing abstinence had, on average, higher teenage pregnancy and birth rates while those whose policies emphasized comprehensive sex education had the lowest teen pregnancy rates. The researchers used this correlation to draw a faulty conclusion that abstinence education was actually causing higher pregnancy rates, violating basic research protocol against using correlations to claim causation. In fact, the study’s lead researcher, Kathrin Stanger-Hall admitted, “Because correlation does not imply causation, our analysis cannot demonstrate that [states] emphasizing abstinence causes increased teen pregnancy.”
