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.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you
    know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    constant basis.
