Menopause Mother-in-Law Link

Pirate FM has learnt the classic mother/daughter--in-law spats could be about biology.

Researchers at Tremough claim women go through the menopause in their fifties so they can concentrate on looking after their grandkids.

A study claims the children of mums who gave birth late before 1900 were less likely to survive.

Dr Andy Russell explains why: "When women are breeding they tend not to be as cooperative. If you compete over your food instead of cooperate over it then maybe you become more susceptible to disease, for example it causes children to die young."
