Having more children could slow aging

In the journal PLOS One, researchers reveal that women who had more children had longer telomeres than women who had fewer children.

Telomeres are caps at the end of each DNA strand that protect our chromosomes - thread-like structures that contain all our genetic information - from damage.

Each time a cell replicates, telomeres become shorter. They eventually become so short that they stop protecting chromosomes, leaving them vulnerable to damage, which in turn causes our cells to age and stop functioning effectively.

Previously, animal studies have supported the "life history theory," suggesting that higher reproductive behavior is associated with accelerated biological aging.

However, this latest study, led by Prof. Pablo Nepomnaschy and Cindy Barha - both of Simon Fraser University in Canada - contradicts this theory.

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I found this during my hunt for
    something regarding this.

    The writer is called Tod though he doesn't like being called just like that.

    For a while she's experienced North Carolina and she might never
    advance. Hiring is my profession. What her family
    and her love is bottle tops collecting and now she is
    hoping to building an income with it.
