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 have been surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I never
    found any fascinating article like yours. It's beautiful worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web shall be much more useful
    than ever before.

    Hi there! This article could not be written much better!
    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I am going to send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he'll have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!
