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.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet
    explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd
    post to let you know. The style and design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

    I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post's to be exactly
    I'm looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn't mind publishing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome site!
