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.

    Iím impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog thatís equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

    I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It looks like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen previously. Many thanks|
