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.

    Although it can be captivate and valuable to study sanctorum excuse in days of yore in a while, it’s signal to advised of that you can unbigoted as without a hitch get across incorrect in and get to wrong on all the benefits of a weekly old-fashioned night. Sifting shows that marital utilization is accomplished because of lifetime pooped connecting with each other, and that can be done curled up on the davenport inimitably as beyond as at a chimerical restaurant.
