Reuters says:

"In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is apt to be more successful in white women than in Asian women, a study suggests."

Well, that's mysterious. Because according to Wikipedia:

"Most biological and social scientists regard the concept of race primarily as a social construct..."

Why didn't anyone explain this to the women?

Wikipedia, goes on to say that scientists "prefer to conceptualize and analyze human genotypic and phenotypic variation in terms of populations and clines instead."

Ah, that clear things up.

I'm not so in love with the concept of race
But throw it away and you soon see the face
Of something much like it, taking its place.
