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.

    Hi, I do believe your website may be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE,
    it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to
    provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that,
    wonderful site!

    I wish to show appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular setting. Just after searching through the the net and seeing ways which are not productive, I figured my entire life was done. Living without the solutions to the problems you've resolved through your main guide is a critical case, and the kind that could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your web site. The capability and kindness in taking care of all things was invaluable. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a point like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this specialized and amazing help. I will not think twice to refer the sites to anyone who would like direction about this topic.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

    Hi, There's no doubt that your website could possibly be having
