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, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured
    I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging
    links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me
    an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Great blog by the way!

    May I just say what a relief to uncover a person that really knows what they're talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people need to read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you surely have the gift.
