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.

    Foods which might be easy to digest, packed with nourishment, cleanse your blood and
    strengthen your immunity against disease. The microwave is completely off limits in Ayurveda so I prepare
    everything within my pressure cooker or on the stove. California is commonly the main thing
    on all American markets and trends, including healthiness.

    Greetings, I do believe your site could possibly be having web
    browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website
    in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, great blog!
