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.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent
    blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be
    back.

    Find out the real cause of health conditions that you might be dealing with.
    If you want to perk up your average stuffing or dressing, try a
    few of these peppers. Internet, video games, smartphones, computers, TV's,
    I Pads, and so forth, are the reasons why children spend more time at home than ever before.

    certainly like your website however you have to
    check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find
    it very troublesome to tell the reality however I will definitely come back again.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
    reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    now every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
