New research led by scientists at Leeds University in the United Kingdom suggests that a diet rich in legumes and fish may put off the natural onset of menopause, while foods rich in carbohydrates may accelerate it.
The researchers found having a high intake of oily fish and fresh legumes - such as peas and beans - was associated with a menopause delay of more than three years.
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. While early menopause is linked to a higher risk of heart disease, depression and bone degeneration, it also protects women against some forms of cancer, including ovarian, breast, and endometrial.
About 14,000 women were tracked for four years post-survey, during which just over 900 experienced natural menopause.
Of all the women, 914 experienced menopause naturally between the ages of 40 and 65. The team took factors including weight and use of hormone replacement therapies into account, but could not consider genetic factors.
Dunneram and colleagues examined the data available from the UK Women's Cohort Study - a survey of over 35,000 British-based women aged between 35 and 69.

"That said it is an interesting approach to investigate the timing of the menopause but I am not yet convinced that diet alone can account for the age of the onset of the menopause".
The maturation of eggs and their release, says the team, are affected negatively by reactive oxygen species.
Refined carbohydrates can increase the risk of insulin resistance, boosting oestrogen levels and interfering with hormones related to reproduction.
Women who ate lots of vegetables such as green beans and peas went through the menopause around a year later than those who did not eat them. "There are too many other factors involved". It is tempting to speculate that this provides a recipe for delaying menopause. Unfortunately, a big limitation of these observational studies, is their inability to prove that dietary behaviour actually causes early menopause.
