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’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.
