"Waiting beyond 6 to 12 months of age in Rottweilers and Labrador retrievers, and at least 2 years in German shepherds, cut the risk for the joint disorders studied"

Also info re how it affects cancer risk. 

I've often tell people I do not view hormones as a disease - God gave them to us for a reason that goess well beyond the ability to reproduce.

It's worth reading the cited studies for this article because they don't always state what the author says they do.

Especially the first one.
