A new study from researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia reveals that soy protein could be the secret weapon against the side effects of menopause - in particular, the effects of menopause on metabolic and bone health. The findings of the study may also mean a new way to protect the bone strength of women who have not yet experienced menopause.
Menopause is that natural decline in the production of reproductive hormones that develops when a woman reaches her 40s or 50s.
Lab-made ovaries may be the end of menopause.
Researchers at Wake Forest University's Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center are testing an artificially created ovarian tissue in rats with the ability to release estrogen and progesterone.
These artificial ovaries may mean a new way to treat or even prevent menopause in women.
