Chinese women and menopause

I thought this article from BellaOnline.com was pretty interesting for a couple reasons: 1. our Chinese counterparts are quite similar in the percentage and types of menopause symptoms as North American women, 2. we've heard for years that Asian women suffer less lot flashes because they have more soy in their diet than Western women, but this study suggests that there are a lot of differences between Chinese and Japanese diets (Japanese have more soy in their diets) and so Asian women cannot be all lumped together in one group.

I'm sorry that I haven't been posting as frequently as I usually do on the blog, but in the summer the number of articles tends to slow way down. Summer news tends to be a bit slower! Hope everyone is doing well.....school started here in NC for most kids yesterday, so that means cooler weather is around the corner.
