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 realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours
    take a large amount of work? I am brand new to
    writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so
    I can share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    At this time it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform available
    right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
