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.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured
    I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same topics as
    yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me
    an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb
    blog by the way!

    wonderful put up, very informative. I ponder why the opposite
    experts of this sector don't notice this. You must proceed your
    writing. I am confident, you have a huge readers' base already!

    I do not know if it's just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else
    please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this
    happen before. Thank you

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less.
    I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about
    a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
