Here's what passes for science at a major U.S. university. Experiments on menopause involving animals who don't naturally experience menopause, and all intended to find treatments for menopause in humans. You don't need to be a scientist to think that doesn't make sense.

PETA has filed a suit to get video and documents to expose and put a stop to the experiments. In the meantime, the wasteful experiments continue. Why do they happen?
