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.

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

    The assessor general, they stated, incorrectly mixed up what takes
    place to travelers captured crossing illegally between borders with migrants who concern lawful ports of entrance looking
    for asylum.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I
    was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog
    soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
