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.

    Aw, this was a very good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I
    put things off a lot and never seem to get anything done.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to
    no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
