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.

    certainly like your website however you have to test
    the spelling on several of your posts. Many of
    them are rife with spelling problems and I to find
    it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will
    surely come back again.

    Hi there! 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 prevent hackers?

    I believe everything published made a bunch of sense.
    But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I ain't saying your content isn't solid., but suppose you added a headline that grabbed a person's attention? I mean Having more children could slow
    aging is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo's
    home page and note how they write post titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little
    bit more interesting.
