[PER] sheep provide perfect model for study of menopause



Ewe! Sheep provide perfect model for study of menopause

Colorado State University research points to the use of sheep - instead of laboratory rats - to more accurately study the effects of menopause after several research projects verify that under induced menopause the animal experiences similar symptoms and conditions as do women.

Older ewes - female sheep - experience hot flashes, eye trouble, bone density loss and other symptoms of menopause when their ovaries are removed, which means that research that would benefit menopausal and post-menopausal women, such as research about estrogen replacement therapy, osteoporosis treatments, and prevention of arthritis and sight-inhibiting changes can be conducted on ewes.

зы: хочется особо отметить, что во время подготовки постинга про "одинокую старость никому не нужной женщины" ничего известно не было. это просто совпадение, хотя и потрясающее, конечно.urbansheep serendipity
