What Foods Can Hasten, or Delay, Menopause?

By Alan MozesHealthDay Reporter
MONDAY, May 9, 2018 (HealthDay News) — What women eat might determine when they enter menopause, new research suggests.After tracking more than 35,000 British women for four years, investigators found that menopause tended to start earlier among those whose diets were heavy in refined carbs. In contrast, menopause tended to begin later among those who consumed a lot of fish and legumes.”In particular, a higher consumption of oily fish was found to delay the timing of natural menopause by approximately three years, and fresh legumes — such as peas and green beans — was linked to a later menopause by around a year,” said study author Yashvee Dunneram.

“On the other hand, a higher consumption of refined carbohydrates — such as pasta and rice — hastened the onset of menopause by 1.5 years,” said Dunneram. She is a postgraduate researcher with the nutritional epidemiology group in the school of food science and nutrition at the University of Leeds, in England. more at https://www.webmd.com/menopause/news/20180430/what-foods-can-hasten-or-delay-menopause?src=RSS_PUBLIC#1
