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.

    I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your
    blog. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.

    Thank you

    Great blog you have here but I was curious about
    if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I'd really like to be a part of online community where
    I can get advice from other experienced individuals
    that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Appreciate it!

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