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.
