Fatal Hunger

Aging eggs might starve to death

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: The ovaries are cradles of life, but they are also chambers of death. Droves of egg cells commit suicide there during a woman's life. The cells might off themselves because they run out of food, according to a new study. The work could inspire new treatments for age-related infertility.
