So men die 10 years earlier than women...despite menopause causing these health problems? What do you want- 20 or 30 more years without us?

"Singh points out that if women had historically been the ones to select younger mates, the situation would have been reversed, with men losing fertility."

Menopause being a relatively rapid hormonal transition from fertility to infertility. What men undergo is a more gradual reduction in testosterone starting at about age 40. This reduction starts 10-15 years earlier than menopause and is why men die sooner. So , perhaps the cougars have been at it longer than we think ! Go Cougars !
