And there was much rejoicing! There's quite a ways to go yet, but
this looks like a promising approach to blocking a major negative
health event in women!

Report: Scientists found way to stop onset of menopause

In experiments with mice, Harvard scientists have found a way to block menopause by keeping ovaries alive. London's Sunday Times reported that scientists at the Harvard Medical School discovered an application of two chemical agents called fumonisim-B1, a fungal toxin, and sphingosine-1-phosphate stops cells in the ovaries from dying. The research will be published next week in the scientific journal Nature Medicine, the newspaper said.
