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.

    Hi there, I think your site could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic site!

    certainly like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will surely come again again.
