    Your diet could affect when women hit menopause

    A new study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, has found that certain food groups could affect the age at which the menopause starts.
    Researchers from the University of Leeds used data about the health and reproductive history of more than 14,150 women living in the UK. They were asked to complete a questionnaire about their diet, then the researchers followed up with them four years later.


    Out of the whole group, about 900 women between the ages of 40 and 65 had experienced the start of their menopause by the time of the follow up.
    When analysing their diets, the researchers found women who had a diet rich in oily fish and fresh legumes like chickpeas and lentils were more likely to have a delayed start to the menopause by an average of nearly three years.
    A higher intake of vitamin B6 and zinc were also linked with later menopause, and eating meat was associated with menopause arriving almost a year later than a vegetarian diet.
    In particular, childless women who ate more grapes and poultry reached menopause significantly later as well.
    Women who ate a lot of refined (white) pasta and rice were more likely to start the menopause one and a half years earlier, on average.

    A woman's attitude may affect what you eat.

    Yes, that's quite true.

    I am amazed that with such a small sample size they had womenz who were peri-menopause into their 60's.

    I think it happens in the opposite direction as well.. if you don't have a very nutritious diet, your body signals to reproduce earlier and more often because you may not have much time.

    Same thing if you experience a lot of trauma as a child, that has also been shown to affect the onset of puberty and menstruation.

    Your diet can affect many things and trigger chronic disease-like symptoms.
    “The spirits of darkness are now among us. We have to be on guard so that we may realize what is happening when we encounter them and gain a real idea of where they are to be found. The most dangerous thing you can do in the immediate future will be to give yourself up unconsciously to the influences which are definitely present.” ~ Rudolf Steiner
