Killer Whales Also Go Through Menopause!

Filed under: Science!WhalesAmazing

Killer whales go through menopause, just like people!

Apparently Killer Whales share a rare evolutionary trait with us humans:

Menopause!

That's right, killer whales goes through menopause.

Experts say that this trait improves an offspring's chance of survival.

Orcas are one of the rare species that continues to live long after they're done reproducing.

That means that their baby has a great chance of surviving because he's got his mama's help!

The lead investigator of the study into why these whales have menopause said:

Aerobics May Ease Menopause Symptoms!

Filed under: FitnessScience!

Menopause Exercise

If you're experiencing menopause, you might not be enjoying everything that comes with it.

You might be in luck, however, especially if you're a Finnish woman!

A small study just completed has results which say that a healthy dose of aerobic exercise might ease the symptoms!

It may even be an alternative to hormone replacement therapy! Here's what a doctor from the Finnish study said:

"I would definitely recommend physical activity. I think that among all the options out there that it's probably the best thing for health and also symptoms of aging."

Here's another look at it:

"The effects of exercise on mood are very robust and almost immediate and that would probably be the most likely explanation that might underpin the improved self-report of symptoms. That being said, I don't want to discount the possibility that exercise has a physiological impact."

So in other words, exercise makes you happier, and the mood may be affecting the symptoms. There could be a physiological explanation as well, but a bigger and more intense study would be needed to know exactly what's happening.

Working out 4 times a week led to a 10% drop in both night sweats AND mood swings!

Sounds like it's worth a try — you can only get healthier!

Fab!

The fact that this is legal makes us want to vom.

Hulk Hogan's ex-wife, Linda, has become engaged to her 21 year old son boyfriend Kid Rock Charlie Hill!

Charlie, who started dating the over-processed gutter pig when he was 19 and friends with her son Nick, will now be stepfather to he and daughter, Brooke, even though she's a year older than he is!

The ceremony will be taking place after Linda finishes going through menopause next summer on the couple's yacht.

Lovely!! We're sure everyone is just tickled pink by the news!
