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 want to show appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this situation. After surfing through the search engines and seeing things which are not productive, I thought my entire life was done. Existing without the solutions to the difficulties you have fixed by way of your entire article is a critical case, as well as the ones which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn't discovered the blog. Your main skills and kindness in handling every aspect was vital. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I'm able to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I won't think twice to propose your web site to any person who wants and needs support about this subject matter.
