ok, here is the reason i hate these stupid junk studies: they are based on bullshit science. evolution is by definition the passing on of GENETIC traits that give the organism some kind of advantage in survival. the urge to take care of grandkids is not genetically determined, nor is it some kind of biological trigger for menopause. women did not "evolve" menopause because some of them decided they would be better off staying at home with the kids.
