Men get blamed for many things and now one study says you can add menopause to the list.

Apparently, according to the study reported at, you can throw some blame at the younger woman too. It seems that because in recent evolution history, men have been gravitating toward younger woman, therefore decreasing the odds of older women reproducing.

This may have been a contributing factor to menopause. Most animals don't experience menopause, although killer whales do. The study suggests that men's yearning for younger woman and other random mutations over 50,000 to 100,000 years may have led to menopause. Some experts have questioned the findings in the study.

I'm certainly no expert or scientist, but I would think starting out by blaming men for something is usually a safe bet.
