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.

    you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure
    where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thanks
