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! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book
    or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects
    you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would
    appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

    but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.

    Hi, I believe your web site may be having internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic website!
