I know the idiom Just as X so too Y is correct.

Is the idiom Just as X..so Y correct? An example from OG would definitely help.

Thanks.

Manhattam GMAT has it under the list of idioms so i assume its correct.

example :

465.Just as plant species native to regions with browsing mammals evolved many natural anti-browser defenses (such as sharp spines and toxic chemicals), so humans in malarial regions have evolved dozens of chemical defenses against malaria.
(A) so humans in malarial regions have evolved dozens of chemical defenses against malaria
(B) humans in malarial regions have been evolving dozens of chemical defenses against malaria
(C) there has been, in malarial regions, an evolution of dozens of human chemical defenses against malaria
(D) dozens of chemical defenses against malaria have been evolved by humans in malarial regions

Both are correct. But, if you have an option with both
Just as X, so too Y
Just as X, so Y
i would tend to use option A

I think the structure of the comparison is more important than the idiom itself. Even if the split is between "so too" and "so," your next thought should be to check for redundancy in that "too" may be already conveyed (or implied) elsewhere in the sentence.
