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.

    should therefore function as no real surprise that,
    to experience total overall wellness, we must look after all three (3) areas of ourselves - mind, body and spirit.
    Taking care of your teeth is an ongoing process and regular check-ups and cleaning with the dentist will
    prevent any long-term problems. But, remember
    the key the following is moderation - while a drink every
    day is protective, excessive use of alcohol is devastating to health.

    strips of moleskin that I bought on the drugstore and applied them sparingly for the problem area.
    These attacks are often connected with physical symptoms for example nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and sound.
    But, recall the key this is moderation - while a drink a day is protective, excessive consumption of alcohol is devastating to health.
