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 fantastic blog! Does running a blog such as this require a
    large amount of work? I've absolutely no expertise in coding however
    I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners
    please share. I know this is off topic however I just had to
    ask. Cheers!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I'm getting tired
    of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another
    platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
