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 seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book
    in it or something. I think that you could do with some
    pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is
    magnificent blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.

    I absolutely love your blog.. Very nice colors
    & theme. Did you make this website yourself? Please reply back
    as I'm looking to create my own personal website and would love to learn where you got this
    from or exactly what the theme is called.

    Thank you!
