Healthy lifestyle = healthy menopause. Fact or fiction?
‘The menopause, it sounds a bit like a promotion, but it isn’t like that at all.’ Some time ago comedian Hans Teeuwen made fun of the menopausal transition, but for most women it’s not that funny. After all, no one likes irregular periods, hot flashes and sweats, mood swings, urinary incontinence and other unpleasant symptoms. Loes Jaspers does extensive research into ‘healthy menopausal transition’: what is it exactly? And how can we influence it through our lifestyle (and food in particular)? These are the two questions that will be discussed during the science café.
