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 would like to show some appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a scenario. Just after searching through the world wide web and getting basics that were not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Being alive without the solutions to the difficulties you have sorted out through your guide is a critical case, as well as those which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across the website. Your primary ability and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the skilled and effective guide. I won't be reluctant to recommend your web blog to anyone who should receive care about this matter.

    Can I just say what a relief to search out someone who truly is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know the right way to bring a problem to mild and make it important. More people must learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more standard since you positively have the gift.
