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! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues 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.

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and
    i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you
    can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.
