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.

    Diets with low glycaemic index worth improve the prevention of coronary coronary heart
    disease in diabetic and healthy subjects. Selecting low glycaemic index foods has also demonstrated benefits
    for healthy individuals when it comes to post-prandial glucose and lipid metabolism.
    We created an overall plant-based mostly weight-reduction plan index (PDI) from repeated semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaire knowledge, by assigning positive scores to plant foods and reverse scores to animal
    foods. In obese or overweight people, low-glycaemic index
    meals enhance satiety and facilitate the control of meals intake.
    Scientific evidence for a detrimental position of trans fat
    intake from industrial sources on CHD danger has led
    to vital coverage adjustments including listing trans fatty
    acid content on the "Nutrition Facts" panel and banning using trans fatty acids
    in food service establishments in some cities. Because of
    the load of the evidence, the FDA has lately issued a proposal for together with trans
    fatty acid content material on the meals label. Naturally-occurring
    unsaturated fatty acids have carbon atoms that
    line up in a bent form, leading to a liquid state at room temperature.

    I do not even understand how I ended up right here, but I believed this put up
    was good. I don't recognise who you are however certainly you are going to a famous blogger for
    those who aren't already. Cheers!

    I believe what you published made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
    I am not suggesting your content isn't solid, however suppose
    you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
    I mean Having more children could slow aging is a
    little boring. You might look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create
    post titles to grab people to click. You might add a video or a
    related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've written. Just
    my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
