      Oh, you had better believe they get a few good years from me! (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    Way more than a few.  Every woman is different though.  I went through menopause very very young.   This is a good article.

    Thank you very much. Some good info in that!

    I didn't know that 2 of 3 people with Alzheimer's are women. I do wonder about the life expectancy thing, though. And this sentence struck me as quite funny: "It’s important to note that menopause doesn’t cause Alzheimer’s." Did that really need to be included? LOL!

    I'm grateful for friends and colleagues of similar age, for sure.

    I think the blurry message was that it looks like women who go through menopause young seem more likely to develop Alzheimer's IF they have that genetic marker.     I agree that friends of similar age are priceless.  :)

    I saw that, yes. They left out the word "early", if that was the message!
