In health news, what women eat could affect when they begin menopause. That's according to a new study from the U.K.

It showed eating healthier foods, especially fish and legumes may help delay menopause by an average of three years. But women who ate more refined pasta and rice were more likely to start menopause earlier than average.

Past research shows early menopause increases the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
