Ethnic Differences in Menopausal Symptoms

Researchers have followed 16,000 women including those of Chinese, Japanese, African and Hispanic origin and have found that their experiences of the menopause are very different.

It is thought that the differences are probably due to differences in both hormonal factors as well as diet, as it is known that Japanese and Chinese women eat more in the way of plant oestrogens than other groups and do experience fewer oestrogen related diseases.
