Soybeans and menopause.

Among baby boomer women, for whom menopause is either present or looming, you may notice a budding interest in tofu, tempeh, and other soy products. Sounds like an unusual midlife interest, but research is exploring the question of phytoestrogens found in soybeans. It may be that eating soy products could have a similar effect on the prevention of osteoporosis, the reduction of coronary disease risk, and other symptoms of menopause, as estrogen replacement therapy, without the worry of increasing cancer risk Although the word from the scientific community is still out on this question, hot flashes may be one of many good reason to eat soy.
